TV legend Merv Griffin and
Timothy Parker in Griffin’s Beverly
When television legend Merv Griffin, creator of TV’s “Jeopardy!” and “Wheel of Fortune” created his final television show “Merv Griffin’s Crosswords,” he called only one person.
Mr. Griffin flew Timothy Parker to his Beverly Hills office and worked with Parker to develop the show. Timothy Parker single-handedly wrote the answers for all 225 episodes of the show in three months. In all, Parker wrote over 16,000 clues used on Griffin’s TV show.
