Sherwood Charles Schwartz (November 14, 1916 - July 12, 2011) was an American TV writer and producer who’s most notable for creating the two TV shows Gilligan's Island (1965-1967) and The Brady Bunch (1969-1974).


Career

Schwartz like most TV executives was jewish, but unlike Norman Lear, Schwartz believed in American values such as working with others and maintaining the nuclear family. A lot of his style was corny and slapstick which started it get old in the early 1970s which got Robert Reed who played Michael Brady on The Brady Bunch upset, to the point where the two would often argue, and Reed refusing to do the last episode, and getting fired before the show was officially canceled instead of getting renewed for Season 6. Schwartz remained active for many years after The Brady Bunch ended, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2008.
