Steven Bochco, the TV producer behind such acclaimed crime-and-punishment series as "Hill Street Blues", "NYPD Blue" and "L.A. Law", has died, TMZ reports.

Suffering with leukemia, Steven Bochco received a stem cell transplant from an anonymous 23-year old in late 2014, who he eventually met in 2016. "Steven fought cancer with strength, courage, grace and his unsurpassed sense of humor", reads the statement sent to E!

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

Although she starred in movies like "Bullitt", "The Love God?" and "Mame" her claim to fame was her role of Fay Furillo in the 1980s NBC television series "Hill Street Blues" which was co-created by her husband, Bochco.

Years later, Bochco had one of his few, big misfires, with the musical procedural Cop Rock.

Bochco began winding down his work in television after NYPD Blue a bit, but still kept busy.

Steven Ronald Bochco was born in NY, the son of a violin virtuoso (which inspired his production company's onscreen logo). This is what Spielberg said about Bochco's passing, "Steve was a friend and a colleague starting with the first episode of Columbo in 1971 that he wrote and I directed". After attending New York University and Carnegie Mellon University, he went on to write several series for Universal Studios.

Bochco won 10 primetime Emmys and created hit TV shows including Hill Street Blues, LA Law, NYPD Blue and Doogie Howser, MD. In 2005, Bochco took charge of ABC political drama "Commander in Chief", which was created by Rod Lurie, but he left the one season show after conflicting with ABC.

Retired NYPD Detective Rick Terelli, who was a creative consultant for "NYPD Blue, " said, "You know how many people got inspired by that show?"

After leaving Hill Street Blues, Bochco co-created the legal drama L.A. Law, which ran on NBC from 1986 to 1994.

Bochco is survived by his wife, Dayna; two sons, Jesse Bochco and Sean Flanagan; a daughter, Melissa Bochco; and two grandchildren. At the time, Kalins was the president of his television production company, Steven Bochco Productions, and produced the medical drama "City of Angels". A comedy-drama, the show veered into new territory for Bochco, but it stuck with a core trait of his shows: pushing the boundaries on television. "I said to [NBC entertainment exec] Brandon [Tartikoff], 'We'll do this pilot for you on the condition that you leave us completely alone to do whatever we want.' And he said OK".
