Glen A. Larson

A legend in the realm of television, Glen A. Larson was best known as the producer of such action packed TV hits as "Quincy M.E." (NBC, 1976-1983), "Battlestar Galactica" (ABC, 1978-79), and "Knight Rider" (NBC, 1982-86). A native of California, Larson attended Hollywood High School alongside Robert Wagner, whom he would one day work with on the series "It Takes a Thief" (ABC, 1968-1970). Larson's first foray into show business, however, came in the form of a music career. Singing with a clean-cut vocal group called The Four Preps, Larson was signed to Capitol Records, where his band produced three gold albums, and even appeared on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" (ABC, 1952-1966) and in the movie "Gidget" (1959).
