Born - 6 June 1929, Freehold Borough, New Jersey, USA
Died - 12 September 2014

Bearded. bespectacled writer and director of offbeat entertainments. A former Greenwich Village satirist, he attracted attention as a filmmaker with two cult successes - The Troublemaker (1964) and The President's Analyst (1967). He's probably best remembered now though, as the co-creator of the hit cop show Barney Miller, which ran from 1974 to 1982. Other film credits included Up in the Cellar (1970), Guess Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed? (1973), Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang (1978) and Soggy Bottom, U.S.A. (1981). He devoted the latter part of his life to a new career as a sculptor. The J stood for Jonas.
