In 1948 he made his TV debut in the series “The Fashion Story”, but the show didn’t last long. His first regular series was “The Fifty-Fourth Street Revue” in 1949. Mr. Reiner’s Broadway debut was the same year in the musical “Inside U.S.A.” that ran for 399 performances. His formal writing career began with “Caesar’s Hour”, at the same time he was working on a semi-autobiographical novel “Enter Laughing” which was published in 1958 and later turned into a movie in 1967.
In 1960, Mr. Reiner worked with Mel Brooks on “The Steve Allen Plymouth Show”, where their routine of “The 2000 Year Old Man” became a huge success and won them a Grammy Award. “The Dick Van Dyke Show” was a major success for which he won five Emmys (three for writing and two for producing).
