Studios and release Pure Country starring George Strait.
Weintraub recently brought home an Emmy for producing HBO's Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.
One of his last public appearances was on June 8 at the Los Angeles premiere of HBO's new series, The Brink. Weintraub was an executive producer on the program.

To his family and friends, Amal and I send our love. And to those who didn't know him we send our deepest sympathy. You would have loved him."
