GOODBYE, WINRICH KOLBE
We were sorry today to hear of the passing of TV series producing/directing veteran Winrich Kolbe. With a 35 plus years track record working on some of the best and most popular and enduring US TV shows ever made, including 24, QIINCY, WAR OF THE WORLDS, KNIGHT RIDER, HUNTER, SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND, MILLENNIUM and THE TWILIGHT ZONE, German born Kolbe was most well known to sci-fi fans for his immense directorial work across all the modern incarnations of the STAR TREK series. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA fans, however, will recall his original involvement in the classic series on numerous episodes in different work positions, from being an early producer on the original pilot, to assistant director and then director over the course of the season's duration.
Our condolences go out to Mister Kolbe's family and friends...
