Veteran TV producer Al Simon, 88, who as head of Filmways Productions was responsible for shows including “The Beverly Hillbillies” and “Mr. Ed,” died in Beverly Hills yesterday. Simon also helped get Desi Arnaz to commit “I Love Lucy” to film (instead of to fading kinescopes). He had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
