TV will never be the same. Acclaimed producer Garry Marshall has died at the age of 81. The brother of Laverne & Shirley‘s Penny Marshall created the Happy Days, Joanie Loves Chachi, Mork & Mindy, and Angie TV shows, and so much more.
The Bronx-born son of Marjorie Irene and Anthony Wallace, Marshall began his career as a joke-writer for Joey Bishop. Marshall’s other TV series work includes Blansky’s Beauties, The Brian Keith Show, Me and the Chimp, Love American Style, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Lucy Show, The Joey Bishop Show, and Make Room for Daddy.
The Daily Beast reports the cause of Marshall’s death is still unclear.
