Flack, who’d been ill for some time, last spring shifted into the position of VP, creative affairs, at CBS, also developing programs for the Carsey-Werner Co., where he’d worked in a similar capacity – helping develop “The Cosby Show” – in the early 1980s.

Previously, Flack was VP of casting at ABC, and headed his own casting company from 1982-84, serving as VP of casting at NBC and senior VP of talent & casting at Columbia Pictures TV before moving to the Eye network. At CBS, he was involved with developing such shows as “Major Dad,” “Dave’s World” and “The Nanny.”

Survived by his mother, brother, sister-in-law and two nephews. At Flack’s request, donations may be made to Project Angel Food in Los Angeles or Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) in West Hollywood.
