Execs associated with Battlestar Galactica tell me that the show’s “beloved” line producer for all of its 5 years on the air died suddenly due to multiple health complications. He was 68. A 2008 Emmy winner, “Harvey as a producer had an ability to protect the writers and the most critical creative aspects of the production. He never allowed money or limited resources to be an excuse for not doing whatever was necessary to make the best picture,” a colleague praises. ‘My stock line about Harvey was always: ‘The guy just handles everything. I never hear from him.’ (And when I do, I KNOW the shit must’ve really hit the fan.) He truly made everything — and everyone — involved in Battlestar Galactica better than they deserved to be.”
