1923 - 2006
Spelling was a pioneer in "bad" TV shows that so many of us grew up with and loved so much. Who can forget Saturday nights watching "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" (with the same guest stars rotating through each show)?
Spelling's shows created pop culture icons and launched careers from "Starsky and Hutch" to "Charlie's Angels" to "Dynasty". What we most remember about the '70's and '80's we owe to him. Even made for TV movies like "The Boy In The Plastic Bubble" with John Travolta were his babies. If you recognize the names Dan Tanna, T.J. Hooker or Jonathan and Jennifer Hart, it was Aaron Spelling who's responsible.
And of course, who can forget "Beverly Hills, 90120" and "Melrose Place"? C'mon, admit it. You watched them and you couldn't get enough of them!
