Steven Bochco, best known for creating groundbreaking TV series Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue, died Sunday after a battle with leukemia at the age of 74, according to The Hollywood Reporter. His no-nonsense attitude and thirst for creative control earned him the reputation of being hard to work with and even arrogant at times, but his record speaks for itself and stems from an early conversation he had with a famous producer.

A transplant in late 2014 was credited with prolonging Bochco's his life.

Many other Hollywood personalities also spoke on the loss of Steven Bochco. Steven fought cancer with strength, courage, grace and his unsurpassed sense of humor.

'He died peacefully in his sleep with his family close by'.

Born in NY, his father, Rudolph, was a violinist and his mother, Mimi, was a painter and jewelry designer. He attended NYU and subsequently Carnegie Institute of Technology, receiving a degree in theater.

During its seven-season run, it won 26 Emmys and launched Bochco on a course that led to dozens of series and earned him four Peabody awards, in addition to the 10 Emmys.

Bochco, who was Jewish, won 10 primetime Emmys, created several hit television shows including LA Law, NYPD Blue, and Doogie Howser, MD.




From actor Ken Olin: "I was 28, married, & the father of a baby boy when the creator of "Hill St. Blues" came to NYC to cast a show about minor league baseball".

Bochco received 30 Emmy nominations during his illustrious career.

Steven Bochco grew up in Manhattan but traveled to Los Angeles after finishing college.

"Years and years ago I worked for a producer who taught me more about how not to behave than how to behave". I don't know how many great projects there are going to be in my life, and I'm not going to screw this one up.

"Once you've delivered the screenplay they don't want you around, because you're gonna get in the way of someone else's vision", Bochco said. I figure if you turn that upside down, you're on to something. "That always seems to work". He made a whole career out of playing by his rules and having others adapt to his style while working on some of the most iconic TV shows in history.
