William Self Dies

William Self, a TV and film producer with many genre shows in his resume, died in Los Angeles on November 15, aged 89.

He exec-produced both the Batman and Green Hornet shows for ABC. His Wonder Woman series never got past the pilot stage and an aborted Batgirl spin-off saw the character reincorporated into its Gotham City parent show.

Self collaborated frequently with Irwin Allen, exec-producing Land of the Giants, Lost In Space and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

His other shows included the TV version of The Ghost & Mrs Muir.
