Furman Alton Miller (F.A.), a production manager and producer on TV series, including “Moonlighting” and “Walker, Texas Ranger,” died Tuesday at the USC/Verdugo Hills hospital from complications associated with multiple sclerosis. He was 79.

A celebration of Miller’s life will be held in the near future.
