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.

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.
