The Booty Call director and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air producer died Dec. 23 at 54 while out exercising. His body was found in Hermosa Beach, Calif., by a jogger and police believe that he died of natural causes. Pollack helped create Fresh Prince in 1990 with Benny Medina through their production company, which was later renamed Handprint Entertainment and was shuttered in 2008. Pollack wrote, directed and produced his first major feature, Above the Rim, in 1993, and directed Booty Call in 1997 and Lost & Found in 1999. He also served as an executive consultant on The Tyra Banks Show.
