Director, Producer. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, he broke into television in the early 1950s, becoming over the years one of the most successful and prolific veterans of this medium. Working primarily for Universal Picture Studios, he turned out hundreds of segments of such television series as "Night Gallery", "Name of the Game", "Ironside", "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "Alias Smith and Jones", "Starsky and Hutch" and "Police Woman", plus many made for TV movies like "Punch and Jody" (1974, starring Glenn Ford) and "Crash" (1978). He also directed four motion pictures - "Wild in the Streets" (1968), "The Todd Killings" (1971), "Across 110th Street" (1972, with Anthony Quinn), and "The Deadly Trackers" (1973, with Rod Taylor). Nominated for no less than 13 Emmy Awards during his career, he died of cancer in Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. (bio by: Fritz Tauber)
