In 1962, 1963 and 1964, Reiner won Outstanding Writing Achievement in Comedy at the Emmys for The Dick Van Dyke Show.

It was after that success that Reiner turned his sights toward creating what would become "The Dick Van Dyke Show", on which he had originally planned to star.

Though Reiner made some notable on-screen appearances, his career was largely based behind the camera as a writer, director and producer.

Later, Reiner appeared in the remake of "Ocean's Eleven" and the sequels "Ocean's Twelve" and "Ocean's Thirteen" as Saul Bloom.

Reiner wrote four volumes of memoirs, including I Just Remembered in 2014, as well as children's books. Reiner has also appeared in many famous television shows over the decades, including Night Gallery, Frasier, The Bernie Mac Show, Hot in Cleveland, and Two and a Half Men.
