Charles Edward Sellier, Jr. was an American television producer, screenwriter, novelist and director, best known for creating the American book and television series, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. He also wrote and produced more than thirty films and 230 television shows during his career, which spanned four decades. Charles Sellier was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on November 9, 1943. He was the only son of Charles Edward Senior and Gladys Carson Sellier. His father worked as a shipping clerk. Sellier was born as a Cajun Catholic, later converting to Mormonism and then to evangelical Christianity. The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, which aired on NBC during the 1978–1979 television season, depicted a character, portrayed by actor Dan Haggerty, who escapes a bounty hunter and rescues a bear cub who becomes his constant companion in the series. Sellier had first introduced the character in his 1972 novel, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams, loosely based on the real-life 19th century mountain man, James "Grizzly" Adams. The series was produced by Sunn Classic Pictures, a production company based in Park City, Utah, which Sellier had founded.
