TELEVISION REVIEW; Upstairs, Downstairs in the Crass Class War
NYTimes - about 13 years
''The Help,'' a new WB series that starts tonight, comes off like a school play, clumsily blocked, loudly acted and nearly shouted down by obligatory laughter and applause. Because it stars television sweeties Mindy Cohn and Tori Spelling, now all grown up (Mindy is matronly, Tori is Tori), home audiences may be tempted to cheer along with the

  • 1987
    Age 39
    In the late 1980s, Leavitt co-created Married... with Children, which, with its debut on the Fox network in 1987, broke many of the established rules and mores of television.
    More Details Hide Details He served as executive producer and wrote or co-wrote close to 150 episodes. Its longevity over eleven seasons made Married... with Children the second-longest-running sitcom on Fox, just behind The Simpsons. Among its industry honors, Married... with Children earned seven Emmy nominations and an equal number of Golden Globe nominations, including Best TV Series. The show became a springboard for Leavitt to create a number of spin-offs, initially Top of the Heap, starring Matt LeBlanc and Joseph Bologna, and Vinnie & Bobby, starring Matt LeBlanc and Robert Torti. He would subsequently co-create, executive produce and write Unhappily Ever After, which earned a loyal following for more than five seasons on the WB. In more recent years Leavitt created and wrote several episodes of the WB's The Help. Other achievements outside the realm of television include recognition by the State of California as Citizen Hero of the Year in 2001, and the equally notable accomplishment of out-eating wrestler King Kong Bundy in a cheesesteak sandwich-eating contest at Dominick's Kitchen while Bundy was guest starring on Married... with Children.
