HERMOSA BEACH (AP) — A producer of TV’s “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and writer-director of “Above the Rim” has died.

Police say Jeffrey Ian Pollack was found collapsed early Monday morning in the Greenbelt jogging area of Hermosa Beach, about 20 miles southwest of Los Angeles. Pollack was 54.

Authorities said Thursday they do not suspect foul play. Pollack was wearing jogging clothes and carrying an iPod when a passer-by discovered him and contacted police.

Pollack produced several seasons of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” as well as a Jennifer Lopez concert documentary. Besides “Above the Rim,” Pollack directed the films “Booty Call” and “Lost & Found.”
