Producing numerous programs for the ITV network, Lew Grade ranked among British television's driving forces during the '60s and '70s, and through his Associated Television company was responsible for such major hits as The Saint, Thunderbirds, The Muppet Show, and the long-running soap opera Coronation Street. His 1977 television miniseries Jesus of Nazareth received international acclaim. Through his Associated Communications Corporation, Grade oversaw the production of such internationally popular feature films as The Exorcist (1973), On Golden Pond (1981), Sophie's Choice (1982), and the early Muppet movies. As with many moguls, Grade understood the desires of mainstream audiences. Grade entered the entertainment industry performing in music hall variety shows. When music hall ceased to be popular, Grade founded a theatrical agency with his brother, Leslie Grade. As an agent, Grade represented such powerhouses as Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, and Ralph Richardson. Grade became a producer in the early '60s.
