The guiding force behind some of the most popular films and television shows of the late 20th century, Emmy-nominated writer, director and producer Garry Marshall rose from the writers’ room on series like “The Dick Van Dyke Show” (CBS, 1961-66) to producer and creator of such enduring hits as “The Odd Couple” (ABC, 1970-75), “Happy Days” (ABC, 1974-1984), “Laverne and Shirley” (ABC, 1976-1983) and “Mork and Mindy” (ABC, 1978-1982). Marshall’s segue into film direction during the early 1980s was equally successful and would go on to include such box office juggernauts as “Pretty Woman” (1990) and the “The Princess Diaries” (2001) franchise.
