Gary David Goldberg Dies
Gary David Goldberg, the Emmy-winning creator of Family Ties, died Sunday after a long battle with brain cancer. He was 68.

Goldberg, who passed away two days shy of his 69th birthday at his home in Montecito, CA, launched Family Ties on NBC in 1982. The comedy made a star of Michael J. Fox and served as a staple of the Peacock’s Thursday lineup for nearly a decade.

He later reunited with Fox on ABC’s Spin City (which he co-created with Bill Lawrence). He also created the acclaimed semi-autobiographical half-hour dramedy Brooklyn Bridge, which ran for two seasons on CBS.

His other credits include writing stints on Lou Grant, The Bob Newhart Show and M*A*S*H. He also directed the films Dad and Must Love Dogs.

Goldberg is survived by his wife, Diana, and daughters Shana Goldberg-Meehan (a former Friends EP) and Cailin Goldberg-Meehan.
