His two biggest additions to the TV landscape were the 1978 sci-fi cult classic Battlestar Galactica and the 1982 action-adventure Knight Rider.

The iconic producer passed away at the UCLA Medical Center after a battle with esophageal cancer. Larson is survived by his wife, his brother, and his nine children from two marriages.
