Rick Rosner is the creator of "CHiPs".
"I was the Creator, and Exec Producer for the first season.. after which I left to create a second series: "240-ROBERT!" w/ Mark Harmon & Joanna Cassidy. It was on ABC back in 1979," wrote Rosner in an August 2, 1995 message. "Erik & I have remained close friends -- and I had lunch w/ Larry a couple of weeks ago. I'm still writing on a '286' IBM computer. I'm waiting for "WINDOWS '95" to come out later this month -- and then I'll graduate to a 'pentium multi-media' model.. which will allow me to surf the INTERNET."
Rick was (or may still be) a reserve Deputy Sheriff for Los Angeles County.
In his first message to CHiPs Online on July 31, 1995, he said, "My friend Mark Goffman, a major studio exec at Paramount, told me about the "CHiPs" site -- fantastic."
