Steven Bochco, o-creator of NYPD Blue, Hill Street Blues, dies

Writer-producer Steven Bochco speaks at the ceremony honoring television producer David Milch with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

According to his spokesperson, he died in his sleep.

Bochco was married three times, the first time to Gabrielle Levin.

Variety reports that TV producer and writer Steven Bochco has died following his battle with leukemia.

On behalf of 411, our condolences to the fans, friends and family of Mr. Bochco. Variety is reporting that in the 1980s, he sparked a golden age in television by producing two highly successful crime dramas-Hill Street Blues and LA Law. Barbara Boxer's office in 2007 to demand a bill on global warming be passed. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a theater degree in 1966.

Bochco first found success with the police drama Hill Street Blues, which he developed for NBC with the understanding that he be allowed to do whatever he wanted with the pilot episode. "If I can't do that, I'll kill it for the next person who comes down the road". "Not one single person turned and said, 'Where's Fay?'" she told the Washington Post. Initially, the show hovered near the bottom of the Nielsen ratings.




Bochco maintained that his fights with network censors had to do with seeking a heightened level of realism in his programs, especially with some of the cop shows for which he was known.

From Corbin Bernsen, one of the stars of "L.A. Law": "I will be forever grateful to Steven Bochco for the key to the lock that opened the door to a career". They thought Fay was extremely boring when she became healthy and she was going to go back to being whining and have a nervous breakdown. "I said to [NBC entertainment exec] Brandon [Tartikoff], 'We'll do this pilot for you on the condition that you leave us completely alone to do whatever we want.' And he said OK". He also holds credits on Commander in Chief, Civil Wars, Cop Rock, Murder One, and Raising the Bar.

The couple separated in 1997 and filed for divorce the following year. When it opened to almost 30 million viewers in September 1993, Bochco knew he'd won an important victory for the creative community, albeit one that remains a singular achievement. The couple split in 1969.

"I began to hear words about myself: He's arrogant, he's this, he's that", Bochco recalled in a 2002 interview with The Archive Of American Television.
