Hoffman worked in television from the late 1940s until the early 2000s.

Milt Hoffman, a producer whose career spanned seven decades in television, died February 21, 2013, in Los Angeles. He was 90.

Hoffman, who was born in Los Angeles in 1922, began his career in the late 1940s and he continued to work until the early 2000s.

In a press release, his family said, “Milt's producing credits included, Take a Good Look, The Ernie Kovaks Show, The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show, Steve Allen's Playhouse, Groovy, The Real Don Steele Show, Carter Country, What's Happening!!, After George, Sanford Arms, The Alan Thicke Show, Fantasy!, Solid Gold, Disney's Golden Anniversary of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Arsenio Hall Show, Home Team with Terry Bradshaw and, in 2001, The Entertainment Industry Council's 5th Annual Prism Awards, to name just a few.

“Since 2006, Milt had been living at the Motion Picture & Television Funds Country Home in Woodland Hills, Calif., a retirement community for Hollywoods former actors, cameramen, and executives.

“While there, Milt acted as a consultant to their closed-circuit senior television station, Channel 22, which provides MPTF residents with a unique opportunity to create original programing for their community. Shows are broadcast throughout the grounds, into cottages and rooms, as well as to a YouTube page for families of residents and for the public to enjoy. Milt also enjoyed attending poetry classes, led by the likes of comedian Shelley Berman, who plays Larry David's father on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

“Hoffman passed away of natural causes on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, at the age of 90. [He would have been 91 on April 25.]

“He is survived by his two children, Candy and Craig.”
