Milt Hoffman, a TV producer whose credits ranged from primetime shows with Ernie Kovacs and Steve Allen to “Solid Gold” and “What’s Happening,” died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Fund home in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was 90.

Hoffman’s long run in TV included production posts on “The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show,” “The Real Don Steele Show,” “Carter Country,” “The Alan Thicke Show” and “The Arsenio Hall Show.” He also helped steer the Entertainment Industry Council’s annual Prism Awards ceremony.

Hoffman had been a resident of the MPTF home since 2006. He was a consultant to the org’s closed-circuit TV station, which offers original programming for the showbiz vets who live on the campus.

Hoffman is survived by two children, Candy and Craig.
