*TV sitcom director and Directors Guild of America chief Jack Shea, a veteran of “The Jeffersons” and “Sanford and Son,” died on Sunday in Los Angeles at age 84.

Shea directed 110 episodes of “The Jeffersons” and 91 episodes of “Silver Spoons,” in addition to “Sanford and Son,” “Designing Women,” “Growing Pains” and “The Waltons.”

Shea reportedly helped Jeffersons star Sherman Helmsley perfect his signature “George walk,” which was the exaggerated gait that (partially) made the character famous.

He held the DGA post — a revered position in Hollywood — from 1997 to 2002.
