Legendary TV Series Creator Stephen J. Cannell Dead at 69

Legendary TV Series Creator Stephen J. Cannell Dead at 69Submit Comment
Stephen J Cannell, the creator of such iconic television shows as "The A-Team," "21 Jump Street," "The Rockford Files," "Silk Stalkings," "Renegade," "The Commish" and "The Greatest American Hero," has died. He was 69 years old.

Cannell's family tells Entertainment Tonight that "Cannell passed away at his home in Pasadena on Thursday evening due to complications associated with melanoma. He was surrounded by his family and loved ones."

They continued: "Aside from being a legendary television producer and prolific writer, Stephen was also a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, and a loyal friend. Mr. Cannell is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 46 years, Marcia, their three children, Tawnia, Chelsea and Cody and three grandchildren. Stephen was the pillar of strength within his family and he touched everyone he met. He will be most deeply missed."

The prolific Emmy-winning producer was also the author of 16 novels. Having overcome dyslexia, he was a spokesperson on the condition and advocated on behalf of those with learning disabilities.

^ Despite what he has said about his writing, it's almost Shakespearean.

Also, he still has a book coming out soon too.

I'll repost my previous message:

I wonder if before he died he typed out his will on a typewriter then pulled it out and threw it in the air then it floated onto a pile of paper and curled up into a "C"?
