Alex Trebek was ‘Herculean’ while filming final ‘Jeopardy!’ episodes, executive producer says
Alex Trebek was dedicated to his job up to the very last moment.
As is typical for television, Trebek filmed several episodes of “Jeopardy!” in advance, leaving the program with content featuring Trebek at the helm for a time after his death.
The show’s final episodes featuring Trebek will air this week before champ Ken Jennings takes over as interim host.
Ahead of the final week of Trebek-starring episodes, “Jeopardy!” executive producer Mike Richards appeared on the “Today” show and offered praise for his late colleague.
