Sherwood Schwartz obituary

The creator of Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch

In the 1960s, no one had his finger closer to the pulse of the great American television-watching public than Sherwood Schwartz, who has died aged 94. Schwartz created both Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, two shows that defied critical opprobrium to become hits, and through endless sequels and repeats in syndication have become icons of their era.

Looking back, it is possible to find some cultural weight in each. Gilligan, which, as its theme song, co-written by Schwartz, explained, was the tale of seven people on a "three-hour cruise" who wind up cast away on a lost island, was sold to the CBS network as "a microcosm, but a funny microcosm", and it made its debut in 1964.

'Gilligan's Island' and 'Brady Bunch' creator Sherwood Schwartz dies

12 July 2011 10:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The man who created "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch" has died. Great niece Robin Randall says Sherwood Schwartz died at 4 a.m. Tuesday. He was 94. Schwartz was a veteran comedy writer when he created two of TV's best-remembered sitcoms in the 1960s. Over the years, they have inspired parodies, spinoffs and countless stand-up comedy jokes.

Nicolas Cage: From the sublime to the ridiculous

18 January 2011 4:00 PM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion," Nicolas Cage once asserted. And there's little doubt that the Californian's film trajectory has been acid-blowingly baffling. Who is his agent? Stephen Merchant's hapless Darren Lamb from Extras? Has there ever been a film career as wilfully deranged as Cage's? »
