One of American TV's most prolific directors, Rich worked in the medium for almost 50 years, mainly on classic comedy series: I Married Joan, Where's Raymond?, Our Miss Brooks, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, All in the Family, On the Rocks, Benson, Mr Sunshine and Walter & Emily - more than 500 episodes in all, including 81 alone for All in the Family.
