The Pacific Palisades home of Michael King, the man behind television shows such as “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Wheel of Fortune” hit the market for $38 million, Variety reported.

King, who died in May 2015, purchased the home with his wife, Jena, for $11 million in 2002, according to property records. The couple quickly tore down an existing home on the property to build the current ivy-covered white mansion, which was designed by architecture firm Ferguson & Shamamian and completed in 2005.

The house first went on the market in May 2016 with an asking price of $42 million but was later taken off the market, according to Variety.

The 15,642-square-foot home on San Remo Drive features seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and five fireplaces. It also features a 600-square foot theater, a game room, a children’s playroom and staff quarters with a separate kitchen. The dining room walls are inlaid with mother of pearl.

King and his brother Roger inherited King World Productions in the 1970s from their father Charles, who launched the company in 1964, according to Variety.

CBS acquired King World Productions in 1999 for $2.5 billion in stock.
