TV legend receiving David Susskind nod

Aaron Spelling has been selected to receive the David Susskind lifetime achievement award in television from the Producers Guild of America.

“Aaron continues to be one of Hollywood’s most prolific producers, creating groundbreaking television series on every type of subject matter imaginable,” said PGA president Thom Mount. “His unparalleled ability to launch a show into a crowded marketplace and make it work is the standard other television producers strive for.”

Spelling has produced more than 4,000 hours of TV programming and his hit series include “Dynasty,” “Hart to Hart,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Fantasy Island,” “Starsky and Hutch,” “The Love Boat, “Melrose Place,” “Matt Houston” and “The Mod Squad.”

Spelling is chairman of Spelling Television, which currently has “Beverly Hills, 90210,” 7th Heaven,” “Any Day Now” and “Charmed” on the air.

Honor will be presented at the PGA’s Golden Laurel Awards on March 2 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

The PGA also disclosed last week that it has received two appeals to its exclusion of more than 20 TV producers from the nominations list for Golden Laurels. The org did not disclose who had made the appeals but said that arbitration panels would consider them and reach a decision by early next week.
