Comedy writer Sol Saks, who created the 1960s US sitcom Bewitched, has died aged 100.
He died on Saturday of respiratory failure as a result of pneumonia at a Los Angeles hospital, his wife told the Los Angeles Times.
Starring Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch who marries a mortal man, Bewitched ran from 1964 to 1972. Yet while he wrote the original pilot script, Saks never wrote another episode. “He just sat back and took in the royalties,” said Paul Wayne, a longtime friend and writer who worked on the show.
