MORE Steven Bochco, the creator behind gritty, acclaimed legal series such as Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law and NYPD Blue, has died at 74.
The writer/producer’s representative, Phillip Arnold, confirmed his death Sunday in a statement to USA TODAY.

“Steven fought cancer with strength, courage, grace and his unsurpassed sense of humor,” the statement read. “He died peacefully in his sleep with his family close by.”
Bochco, diagnosed with leukemia in 2014, underwent a stem cell transplant, receiving bone marrow from an anonymous 23-year-old donor.

The 10-time Emmy Award winner’s credits also included Doogie Howser, M.

D., which launched the career of star Neil Patrick Harris, and 1990’s much-maligned Cop Rock, a musical police drama.

“It’s a bolt out of the blue, and completely unexpected,” Bochco said four years ago in a report about his treatment at cancer center City of Hope , posted on the facility’s website. “It’s the last thing in the world you expect when you spend your whole adult life basically working out to be healthy.

In his 2016 memoir Truth Is a Total Defense: My Fifty Years in Television, Quote: : “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.

Bochco, whose early writing jobs included the detective series Columbo , was an influential writer/producer of TV staples, police and legal dramas, especially in the 1980s and ’90s. Hill Street, which ran from 1981 to 1987, reinvented contemporary ensemble drama, with its handheld cameras, serialized storytelling and richly developed characters.
Daniel J. Travanti starred as the compassionate captain Frank Furillo and Bochco’s then-wife, actress Barbara Bosson, played Furillo’s ex-wife, Fay.

Though the NBC show’s ratings were initially weak, it was critically acclaimed, and its style was mimicked a year later with hospital drama St. Elsewhere .
Bochco bombed with his next series, Bay City Blues, about a minor-league baseball team, which led to a falling out with his production company. But he went on to create the hit legal drama L.A. Law , which ran from 1986 to 1994, and hired David E. Kelley, then a lawyer, as his protégé.

After Cop Rock proved an embarrassing debacle in 1990, he rebounded with NYPD Blue with collaborator David Milch, which aired on ABC from 1993 to 2005. The police drama, which featured Dennis Franz, Jimmy Smits and Kim Delaney, sparked battles with ABC advertisers, affiliates and censors over its adult content, and a FCC fine for showing a woman’s bare bottom. But strong ratings and critical praise won the show staying power and freedom.
