Wolper's projects won more than 50 Emmys, five Peabody Awards, eight Golden Globes and one Oscar, the entertainment industry trade newspaper noted.
"The passing of David L. Wolper is a tremendous loss for Warner Bros. and the entire entertainment industry," Warner Bros. chief Barry Meyer told The Hollywood Reporter.
"David was a good man, a great humanitarian and family man and simply one of the most prolific and important producers ever of film, television and live events. We were not only longtime business associates but close friends. David's sense of honor and goodwill will never be forgotten by those fortunate enough to have known him."
A private service is to be held at Forest Lawn in Hollywood Hills, and arrangements for a public memorial are under way.
