Obituary

Obituary: 

Delia Fine was a producer who was known for a series of acclaimed series, miniseries and telefilms made during her lengthy tenure the the A&E Network. Fine, who spent more than a decade at the cable net, received 11 Emmy nominations and won once, in 1999, for outstanding miniseries — a four-part Horatio Hornblower production starring Ioan Gruffudd as the fictional British seaman.

Her other miniseries credits at A&E included Pride and Prejudice, The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling, Vanity Fair, The Scarlet Pimpernel, and The Last King. Her made-for-TV movies included Emma, Jane Eyre, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, The Great Gatsby, Victoria and Albert, Shackelton, Dash and Lily, Flight 93, and Touch the Top of the World. She also produced such series as Framed, Dalziel and Pascoe,  Midsomer Murders, Armadillo, A  Nero Wolfe Mystery and Agatha Christie: Poirot.

Before A&E, Fine helped to launch The Morning Show on New York City station WABC, which starred Regis Philbin and Cyndy Garvey. The daytime talk show was a precursor to the long-running syndicated hits Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee, Live! With Regis and Kelly and Live! With Kelly and Michael.
