Lorimar, later known as Lorimar Television and Lorimar Distribution, was an American television production company that was later a subsidiary of Warner Bros., active from 1969[1][2][3] until 1993. It was founded by Irwin Molasky, Merv Adelson, and Lee Rich, who named the company by combining the name of Adelson's ex-wife, Lori, with Palomar Airport in San Diego, California.[1]

In 1984-85, three of the Top 10 shows in the United States were produced by Lorimar; CBS-TV's Dallas, Knots Landing, and Falcon Crest]. In the mid-1980s, Lorimar's output swung toward family-friendly sitcoms; among these were NBC-TV's The Hogan Family (initially titled Valerie), ABC-TV's Perfect Strangers and Full House, which were produced by Miller-Boyett Productions.
