As pleasing as it is to imagine that the wheel on Wheel of Fortune has existed forever, before even the game show, like the monolith in 2001, it was in fact designed by a human: Ed Flesh, who died on Friday at age 79 in California. Flesh was something of a game show specialist—besides Wheel of Fortune he was also the art director for Jeopardy!, The $25,000 Pyramid and Name That Tune—but he also designed the sets for talk shows and soap operas during his multi-decade career. He leaves behind David Power, his partner of 44 years. [THR]
