Sol Saks, a comedy writer who created one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, has died at 100, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Saks created the show "Bewitched" after being inspired by two films, "I Married a Witch," a 1942 film starring Veronica Lake and Fredric March, and "Bell Book and Candle," a 1958 movie starring James Stewart and Kim Novak. Saks wrote just one episode of "Bewitched," the pilot episode, which was called, "I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha."

"Bewitched" ran from 1964 until 1972 and starred Elizabeth Montgomery as a beautiful witch who gives up magic for life as a housewife. Saks also wrote for early TV series including "My Favorite Husband" and "I Married Joan," with Joan Davis, the story says.
