Remember Norman Lear?

Television producer Norman Lear was a heavy hitting writer and producer in 1970s television. His own mother and father are said to have inspired the Archie and Edith Bunker characters in the sitcom All in the Family. Lear, along with his long-time producing partner Bud Yorkin, developed the show from a BBC program Till Death Us Do Part. His second big TV hit was also based on a British model, but Lear cast African Americans at a junk dealership in the Watts section of Los Angeles. But it was All in the Family which spawned several hit spinoffs for the duo — Maude, The Jeffersons, One Day at a Time, and Maude (which was a spinoff really of Maude).

In the 1970s, Lear also developed cult favorite Mary Hartman, and All That Glitters, both of which were produced for first-run syndication.

In the fall of 1981 he began hosting Quiz Kids for CBS, and in 1984 he was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame. In 1999 President Clinton awarded him a National Medal of the Arts noting, “Norman Lear has held up a mirror to American society and changed the way we look at it.”
