 The legendary actor, comic and producer Garry Shandling died Thursday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at the age of 66. 

Although his acting resume was huge - he's probably best known for the influential HBO series "The Larry Sanders Show" and his earlier sitcom, "It's Gary Shandling's Show."

Created in 1986, the show was nominated for four Emmys, and ran until 1990. 

Alan Zweibel was the show's co-creator and we talked to him about Shandling.
