Sherwood Schwartz, 'Brady Bunch' Creator, Dies at 94

Sherwood Schwartz, the brain behind some of TV's most endearing and recognizable sitcoms, has died, according to TMZ. He was 94.
Schwartz, who created 'The Brady Bunch' and 'Gilligan's Island,' got his start on as a writer on 'I Married Joan' and 'The Red Skelton Hour.' He won an Emmy in 1961 for the latter. Prior to his TV credits, Schwartz wrote for the radio versions of 'The Bob Hope Show' and 'The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.'
'Gilligan's Island' took off in 1964 and ran for three seasons on CBS. The series starred Bob Denver, Alan Hale and Dawn Wells (pictured with Schwartz). Following the success of 'Gilligan's,' Schwartz created 'The Brady Bunch,' starring Florence Henderson and Robert Reed, for ABC in 1969.
