The writer who directed the Toronto-shot, first “Police Academy” movie in 1984 has died at the age of 74.  Hugh Wilson was also the creator of the best radio satire series ever to hit the small screen
Wilson started out as a comedy writer on Bob Newhart and Tony Randall’s 1970s TV shows and was originally hired to “punch up” the Police Academy script but only agreed to that if he could direct.

Wilson’s other projects included “The First Wives Club,” “Guarding Tess,” and “Blast from the Past.”

Wilson died at his home in Virginia after an illness.
