Lance Heflin Dead: ‘America’s Most Wanted’ Executive Producer Was 67

Lance Heflin, former executive producer of “America’s Most Wanted,” died Nov. 15 after a brief hospital stay, his representative confirmed to Variety. He was 67.

Heflin’s work on “America’s Most Wanted” led to the arrest of more than 1,000 fugitives, including 17 from the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Criminals list. During his 22 years as executive producer, the investigative series also reunited over 30 abducted children with their families. At the time of the show’s cancellation in 2012, it was the longest-running series with 25 seasons, a record that has since been surpassed by “The Simpsons.”

Born and raised in Independence, Mo., Heflin — son of late Missouri State Sen. Clarence Heflin — attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism, where he found his love for television as the managing editor of the school’s news station, KOMU.

Heflin spent his early career in Miami, as a photographer at

Herb Solow Dead: Producer Brought ‘Star Trek’ to NBC

Herbert F. Solow, a longtime television executive who pitched the original “Star Trek” series to NBC while he was at Desilu Studios, along with “Mission Impossible” and “Mannix,” died on Thursday, his wife, Dr. Harrison Solow, confirmed. He was 89.

In later years, he and his wife wrote several books on the “Star Trek” series, including “Inside Star Trek: The Real Story” and “The Star Trek Sketchbook.”

Solow was brought in by Lucille Ball after her divorce from Desi Arnaz to help revive Desilu Studios, where he helped develop and sell “Star Trek” to NBC — after CBS originally turned it down because it already had “Lost in Space” — as well as “Mission: Impossible” and “Mannix” to CBS.

Solow helped guide “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry on their pitch to the network, and continued to champion the series until Ball herself got behind the effort.

Solow told the publication

He was walking into a very crowded room on a sunny Manhattan afternoon accompanied by Lorne Michaels, the creator and executive producer of “Saturday Night Live,” for whom O’Brien had previously worked as a writer. Michaels was about to introduce him as the new host of NBC’s “Late Night” show succeeding David Letterman, who happened to be O’Brien’s long-time comedy idol.

At that point in his career, O’Brien had the exact same level of experience as a performer on television as I had: namely, zero. (He surpassed me quickly.)

Three found dead in Colorado; man called Psycho is sought

After three human bodies were discovered on a remote Colorado property, law enforcement officers are searching for a man who goes by the name “Psycho.”

Tracey Davis, author and daughter of Sammy Davis Jr., dead at 59

Author Tracey Davis, daughter of legendary entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. and actress May Britt, has died at age 59.

Davis’ ex-husband Guy Garner confirmed the news to The Associated Press that Davis died in Franklin, Tennessee, on Nov. 2 after a short illness. However, an official cause of death is not yet determined.

She wrote a second book, “Sammy Davis Jr.: A Personal Journey With My Father,” in 2014. In her books, she wrote about her father’s experiences encountering racism throughout his career.
