TV Hit Show Creator Steven Bochco Dead at 74

Steven Bochco, the creator of TV hit shows Hill Street Blues, LA Law, NYPD Blue and Doogie Howser, M.D., has died at age 74.

The 10-time Emmy Award-winning producer/writer's death was confirmed Sunday by his representative Phillip Arnold, USA Today reported.

Bochco was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014 and underwent a stem cell transplant.

"Steven fought cancer with strength, courage, grace and his unsurpassed sense of humor," Arnold said in a statement, USA Today reported. "He died peacefully in his sleep with his family close by."

In a memoir published in 2016, Bochco wrote: "I think about life and death differently than before. I treasure life more, and fear death less. Life and its complications are simpler for me, now. I don't sweat the small stuff, as they say."
