Sol Saks dies at 100; creator of 'Bewitched'

Sol Saks, a veteran television writer and playwright who created the classic 1960s sitcom "Bewitched," has died. He was 100. Saks, a longtime Sherman Oaks resident, died Saturday of respiratory failure as a result of pneumonia at Sherman Oaks Hospital, said his wife, Sandra. Although Saks wrote the pilot script for the sitcom "Bewitched," he never penned another episode of the popular series about a witch married to a mortal. It ran on ABC from 1964 to 1972 and starred Elizabeth Montgomery and, originally, Dick York. "That was it: He just sat back and took in the royalties," said Paul Wayne, longtime friend and a writer who freelanced on "Bewitched"...
