WEA in The News: TV giant Fred Silverman does some reprogramming on the Westside

Fred Silverman made an indelible mark on American television with such 1970s hits as “All in the Family,” “The Waltons” and “Charlie’s Angels.” Now the TV producer and exec is trying for another sort of hit, listing his Westside compound for sale at $30 million.

Set on more than 2.5 park-like acres in Brentwood, his longtime estate consists of three structures, a swimming pool, a tennis court, lawns and gardens.

The close to 8,000-square-foot main house takes in views of the mature trees and flowers. A billiard room, a family room with a fireplace and a study/office are among the living spaces, which feature hardwood floors and high ceilings.

The guest house, which has been in use as offices, has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,500 square feet of space. A large koi pond with more than 100 mature fish sits nearby.

The pool house includes a changing room with a bathroom, beamed ceilings and a living room that doubles as a projection room, bar and kitchen.

Designed for entertaining, the site has covered parking for up to 20 vehicles.

Silverman, 78, also produced such shows as “Matlock” (1986-95) and “Diagnosis Murder” (1993-2001). He bought the property in 1988 for $2.55 million.

Stephen Shapiro and Richard Ehrlich of Westside Estate Agency are the listing agents.

He is selling because he recently paid a reported $10.2 million for a four-bedroom house on a half-acre in Pacific Palisades.
