He died in his sleep Sunday morning, although he'd been fighting leukemia for 4 years. Hill Street Blues changed the cop show at a fundamental level. For that matter, HSB changed television. Every ensemble drama that came after owes something to him.

If I could pick one Hollywood person who really made an impression on me, someone whose work I would like to emulate, it would be Steven Bochco.

10 Emmys
4 Peabodys
2 Humanitas Prizes
2 Edgars

Rest in peace.
