The World has lost a revolutionary producer who brought bigotry to television

Norman Lear whose trend-setting 1970s comedies All in the Family, and The Jeffersons transformed the sitcom landscape — has died. He was 101.

His death was confirmed by Lara Bergthold, a spokeswoman for the family, on Wednesday, per the New York Times.

The boundary-pushing TV legend — born July 27, 1922, in New Haven, Connecticut — also revolutionized the family dynamic in the 1970s with shows including All in the Family, Jeffersons, Good Times, and Sanford and Son that revolutionized television by addressing issues of bigotry.

Throughout his decades-long career, he received many recognitions for his producing prowess and command of comedy. Nominated for 17 Emmy Awards, Lear won six — including four for the Carroll O’Connor- and Jean Stapleton-starring “All in the Family,” which aired from 1971 to 1979.
