“Wheel of Fortune” Director Mark Corwin Passes Away
Sad news to pass along from Sony. Long time Emmy Award-winning Wheel of Fortune director Mark Corwin passed away on July 25th at the age of 65. Corwin directed more than 2,000 episodes of the popular syndicated game. He had a long history with the genre, though. Other credits include Hollywood Squares, Password Plus, The New High Rollers, Card Sharks, and Jeopardy!. Wheel executive producer Harry Friedman said, “Mark made directing Wheel of Fortune look easy and it’s no simple task. He loved this show and understood that the viewers have a special bond with Wheel, which he never took for granted.”
