I need to know which is the best evergreen shrub for the fence line. (privacy)I need a fast grower,disease resistant, fairly tall. I had red tip photenias that were great but they all died after 10 years.

Leyland cypress is probably the fastest growing evergreen hedge material. Hollies, cryptomeria, Eastern white pine, and cherry laurel are other suggestions. Best wishes with your living fence!
