Goodson in TV Hall of Fame

Producer Mark Goodson has been selected for induction into the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame, becoming the 57th person so honored.

The veteran gameshow producer, who was voted the Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1990, has produced more than 20,000 hours of television programming–more than any other individual–over a career spanning more than 40 years.

Goodson, 77, has produced such shows as “The Price Is Right,””Family Feud, “”Password” and “To Tell the Truth.” His first show with longtime partner Bill Todman, “What’s My Line,” premiered in 1950.

Goodson and six additional inductees, to be announced at a later date, will be installed next fall in ceremonies at the Disney World resort in Orlando.
