Robert Foster, Executive Producer, passes away.

Robert Foster, Executive Producer on the original Knight Rider series, passed away from brain cancer last month. He was 72. Responsible for running the show for three and a half seasons, his direction was on of a small group that helped to define the memory that everyone thinks of "Knight Rider" today. He helped create such memorable characters as Goliath, and KARR, and writing many fan favorite episodes such as Hearts of Stone, Short Notice, Soul Survivor, Diamonds Aren't a Girl's Best Friend, Knight of the Drones and one of my favorites Knight of the Juggernaut (trailer below).
