But critical dismissal of his work did nothing to impede its success. When Vega$, a detective drama starring Robert Urich, began on ABC in 1978, Spelling was responsible for producing one third of the entire prime time output of the network: wags dubbed it the "Aaron Broadcasting Company". By the midEighties, Forbes magazine estimated his fortune at more than $300m, and the reconstruction of his house in the Holmby Hills outside Los Angeles reinforced the impression of boundless and tasteless riches. The Manor (though it was known more regularly in the tabloids as "Candy Castle", after Spelling's second wife) was the largest private residence in California. The master bedroom was the size of a basketball court, and two rooms (out of 123) were reserved by Mrs Spelling for the sole purpose of wrapping presents; one Christmas, truckloads of snow were brought in to cover the lawns. "Big?" Spelling said. "I'm still trying to find the bathroom." Aaron Spelling was born in considerably less luxurious circumstances on April 22, 1923 (though for many years he gave his year of birth as 1928) at Browder Street, a slum district in Dallas, Texas. His mother Pearl's father, a Polish immigrant, had arrived in America with only two words of English. Since one of them was "cowboy", he was directed towards Texas, where Aaron's mother first married a wrestler. After he was killed in a knife fight with a neighbour, Pearl's family got in touch with David Spurling, a Russian whom she had known in Poland, who travelled to America and, after having his name misspelt by immigration officials, married her. David Spelling worked as a tailor and, according to his son, never earned more than $45 a week. There were few Jews in Texas, and young Aaron suffered continual bullying which led, he would later claim, to a nervous breakdown when he was around nine years old. He spent a year at home reading he was particularly taken with Mark Twain and O Henry and by the time he returned to school had become devoted to fiction. He served in the US Army Air Force during the Second World War, in which he was wounded, and then worked briefly for Stars and Stripes and organised theatrical events for the troops. Spelling claimed to have attended the Sorbonne, though in other interviews he maintained he had been to Madrid, or Rome, before returning to America and Southern Methodist University. He directed plays there and then in the Dallas area before heading to New York to try his luck as an actor. There he lived on peanut butter but got no work and, after three months, went to Los Angeles, the centre of America's nascent television industry. He then directed Garson Kanin's Live Wire at the Cahuenga Theatre, where he met his first wife, the actress Carolyn Jones. By 1954 Spelling had begun appearing in bit parts as an actor, after taking a small role in Dragnet. He also began hawking his scripts around Hollywood, which soon came to value his economical dialogue and gift for straightforward narrative. In 1956, he sold Unrelenting Sky to Dick Powell for the western series Zane Grey Theatre; he went on to write 10 of the 29 programmes in the 195657 season. He was hired to write for Jane Wyman (then Mrs Ronald Reagan) and for such hits as Wagon Train and Playhouse 90. In 1959, Spelling moved into production with the series Johnny Ringo, before adding The Zane Grey Theatre, The Dick Powell Show and The June Allyson Show to his roster. In 1962 he oversaw the production of his first selfcreated series, The Lloyd Bridges Show, which ran for a season; the following year's Burke's Law was more successful, and set the tone for his subsequent output. It featured glamorous women, guest stars, opulent sets and plotlines of pure tripe. Having left Powell's production company, Four Star, Spelling worked on several other series, some in partnership with the actor Danny Thomas, before scoring his first great hit as an independent producer with The Mod Squad, a detective series aimed at the young which was first shown on ABC in 1968. It ran for five years and gained six Emmy nominations. Its success led to an exclusive production deal with ABC in 1969, a contract which Spelling renewed in 1972 in partnership with Leonard Goldberg, previously the network's director of programming. The hits followed for nearly two decades. The Rookies, another cop show, ran from 1972 to 1976. SWAT, in 1975, gained a reputation as the most violent TV show of the Seventies, though it ran for only one season. Starsky Hutch, which began the same year, fared better, and made stars of David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser. It was recently remade for the big screen. An uncharacteristically serious drama, Family, which Spelling regarded as among his finest work, followed the next year; it ran till 1980 and won four Emmys. Charlie's Angels was a return to brainless form. Three beautiful women working for a private investigator (never seen on screen) had, each week, to infiltrate some criminal setup, usually dressed as cheerleaders, gogo dancers or ice skaters. Hollywood remade it, too. Relentless rubbish followed, all of it profitable: Hart to Hart, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, TJ Hooker (with William Shatner) and Hotel, based on Arthur Hailey's novel and the film which followed. Savannah, Models Inc, Glitter and Malibu Shores were even worse. But most can still be seen on digital television; it is estimated that every minute of every day, someone is watching an Aaron Spelling production. John Forsythe, who was the voice of Charlie, appeared in the flesh when Spelling launched Dynasty, his answer to CBS's Dallas, in 1981. Forsythe was Blake Carrington, Joan Collins his scheming exwife Alexis, and Linda Evans his new wife Krystle. Spelling ran into difficulty at the beginning of the Eighties, when he was accused of fraud. He was never prosecuted, but criticised for "shoddy business practices" by the Los Angeles DA. With the cancellation of Dynasty in 1989, many thought he was washed up, but he returned to form with Beverly Hills 90210, a high school soap featuring his daughter Tori. Spelling also produced some 200 television movies, of which the best were The Best Little Girl in the World, The Boy in the Plastic Bubble and And the Band Played On, one of the first dramas to tackle Aids. He was responsible for the miniseries Hollywood Wives, based on Jackie Collins's book, and for Danielle Steel's Crossings. Aaron Spelling's first marriage ended in divorce. He is survived by his second wife, Candy, an interior designer whom he married in 1968, their daughter and their son Randy, who is also an actor.
