'All in the Family' Writer

Matt Schudel

Michael "Mickey" Ross, a television writer and producer, who had a role in creating "All in the Family," "The Jeffersons" and "Three's Company," has died at the age of 89. He was a longtime associate of Norman Lear and won an Emmy for co-writing an episode in which Archie and Edith Bunker inadvertently get caught up with swingers.

In recent years, Ross -- whose given name was Isidore Rovinsky -- became interested in promoting Jewish and Yiddish studies and gave millions of dollars to endow Jewish studies programs at UCLA and his alma mater, City College of New York.

The episode of "All in the Family" can be seen in three takes, beginning here.
