Clifford Campion

Clifford Campion, 40, writer and producer, died Dec. 24 of brain cancer.

He won the Christopher Award for writing the telefilm “Little Troll Prince” (1987). He was twice nominated for the Humanitas Prize for writing CBS telepics “Love Mary” (1986) and “Hallmark Hall of Fame’s” “Marva Collins Story” (1980), which he also produced.

Raised in Culver City, Campion attended the U. of Arizona from 1968 to ’70 before transferring to the U. of Southern California’s School of Cinema in 1970. Upon graduation in 1972, Campion worked in the mailroom at Warner Bros.

He was later promoted to the tour department, where he reshaped the studio tour into what has become known as the VIP Tour.

His first production assignment came shortly thereafter, when he began work as a production assistant on the syndicated tv show “This Is The Life,” for which he wrote numerous episodes.

Campion wrote for more than 50 productions. At the time of his death, he had just completed “Another Side Of Winning,” to star John Larroquette for Procter & Gamble and NBC, and was developing “The Betty Riggs Story,” also for NBC.

In addition, he was developing the theatrical feature “Growing Up” to star Sally Kellerman.

Other writing credits include “Samaritan” (CBS), “Body Of Evidence” (NBC), “Celebration” (ABC), “Kingsley” (CBS), “Children Of The Sun” (CBS) and “Ladies Of Beverly Hills” (ABC).

Survived by his mother and sister.
