Some sad news to start this weekend with as Adam West passed away last night at his Los Angeles home following a short battle with leukemia. He was 88-years-old.
The actor had a lengthy career that spanned decades but is best known for his role as Batman in the 1966-68 Batman TV show (as well as the movies from the time period) and more recently as the mayor of Quahog on Family Guy.
“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.
On behalf of everyone at TVE, our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Adam West. RIP.
