COEUR D' ALENE, Idaho  -- Charles Sellier, producer of Christian films and creator of the book and television series "The Life and Time of Grizzly Adams," has died. He was 67.

Darryl Howard, director of sales and marketing for Sellier's production company, says Sellier died unexpectedly in his home near Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, on Monday. Howard declined to specify the cause of death.

Sellier produced dozens of family-friendly films and television shows, many of them with religious themes. They include "In Search of Noah's Ark" and "Mark Twain's America."

But he was perhaps best known for creating Grizzly Adams, a fictional book and television character who flees bounty hunters and recues a bear cub that grows into a companion.
