Bewitched - Bewitched Creator Saks Dies, Aged 100

Screenwriter Sol Saks, who created iconic TV show Bewitched, has died at the age of 100.
The TV producer passed away in Los Angeles on Saturday (16Apr11).
Saks came up with the idea of a nose-twitching witch who marries a mortal for the pilot episode of Bewitched, entitled I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha.
Elizabeth Montgomery played the lead role of Samantha until the show ended in 1972, and it was later revamped into a movie starring Nicole Kidman in 2005.
Saks also wrote a series of radio comedies and TV shows including I Married Joan and My Favorite Husband.
Additionally, he wrote the screenplay for the 1966 comedy Walk Don't Run, starring Cary Grant.
