Charles E. Sellier Jr., 67, the producer and creator of "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams" and dozens of other TV shows and films, died Monday at his home in North Idaho.
"Chuck" Sellier had a lengthy TV-film resume including such popular films as "In Search of Noah's Ark," "Chariots of the Gods," "In Search of the Historic Jesus" and "The Bermuda Triangle." All of those are listed among the top 50-grossing independent films. Recently, he and his locally based production company, Grizzly Adams Productions, had produced dozens of religious-oriented films and TV shows, including "Ancient Secrets of the Bible" for CBS and "Miraculous Messages" and "The Case for Christ's Resurrection."
He was nominated for an Emmy for his work on the children's show, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" in 1980. He was also the author of a number of books based on his films and TV specials.
The family requests that Sellier be remembered through donations to his passion, the ABC Foodbank, which serves Athol, Bayview and Careywood, Idaho.
