Most of us remember watching "Golden Girls" way back when, and still to this day enjoy a good rerun of the show. Aside from the iconic cast, the reason why this show was a big hit is all thanks to the help of the producer, Paul Junger Witt.
Sadly, the prolific producer passed away last Friday, but the news surfaced over the weekend, according to a spokeswoman, Pam Golum. He was 77 years old.
Witt had been battling cancer for quite some time and passed away in his home in the Los Angeles area.
Witt began his career in the entertainment industry by working in the mailroom of Columbia Pictures. He worked his way up and finally became a producer.
Witt was behind the successful sitcom, "The Golden Girls," "The Partridge Family," and "Soap." He even was behind the original "Beauty and the Beast," according to "PageSix."
He was also known for his work in "Dead Poets Society," "Insomnia," "A Better Life," and "Brian's Song."
Witt is survived by his wife Susan Harris, and their children Anthony, Christopher, Oliver, Sam, and Genevieve.
