Spelling-Goldberg Productions was an American television production company established on May 1, 1972[1] by Aaron Spelling and Screen Gems' top TV executive Leonard Goldberg. They produced series during the 1970s like Family, Starsky & Hutch, T. J. Hooker, S.W.A.T., Charlie's Angels, Fantasy Island, and Hart to Hart. Spelling's other companies, Aaron Spelling Productions (later known as Spelling Entertainment and Spelling Television) and Thomas-Spelling Productions, co-existed at the same time period and produced other well-known shows. A majority of the series produced by Spelling-Goldberg originally aired on ABC.


In 1973, Spelling-Goldberg struck a deal with Metromedia Producers Corporation to distribute the post-1973 output for off-net syndication, including TV movies and the new Chopper One.[2] It was involved in a lawsuit with Worldvision Enterprises (previously ABC Films), the very first distributor of The Rookies; following the lawsuit, domestic syndication of The Rookies would be contracted out to Viacom Enterprises, which would distribute the program through the 1990s.[3]

Spelling and Goldberg decided to part ways, and on June 27, 1977, the duo sold four of its series to Columbia Pictures Television including S.W.A.T., Starsky & Hutch, Charlie's Angels and Family.[4][5] On May 17, 1982, the company was sold to Columbia Pictures for more than $40 million.[6][7] Sony Pictures Television currently owns the Spelling-Goldberg television library (including the television series which were co-produced by Columbia Pictures Television). By May 1986, all of the Spelling-Goldberg's active operations went out of business after the last episode of T.J. Hooker aired.

In 2015, many of these series are now seen on Cozi TV.
