The 10-time Primetime Emmy Award victor, who died on Sunday after a long battle with a rare form of cancer, created several hit television shows including "Hill Street Blues", "NYPD Blue", "L.A. Law", "Doogie Howser, M.D.', "Commander in Chief", 'Raising the Bar" among others.
He died on Sunday morning surrounded by family and friends, personal assistant Phillip Arnold told the media.
Steven fought cancer with strength, courage, grace and his unsurpassed sense of humour. "He died peacefully in his sleep [at home] with his family close by". He moved to the production company MTM Enterprises in the late 1970s and was later chosen to help write a cop drama ordered by NBC - "Hill Street Blues". Then in 1993, Bochco paired with Hill Street Blues writer David Milch to create the award-winning but also controversial drama NYPD Blue, which was the the longest-running one-hour drama in ABC history until it was surpassed by Grey's Anatomy. It was being on #NYPDBlue that made me love working on TV.

Indeed, the result was impressive enough to earn Spurs an unlikely commendation from none other than James T. Still, the revelation that he has any interest in football whatsoever is a fantastic thing in its own right.
Bochco was born in New York City, USA and grew up in a Jewish family, the son of a painter and violinist. Spielberg and Bochco's friendship began in 1971 when Spielberg directed and Bochco wrote the Murder by the Book episode from iconic 60s and 70s crime drama series Columbo.
It would go on to win 26 of them, and led Bochco on a course to earn several Peabody awards in addition to his 10 Emmys.
In recent years, Bochco (briefly) showran Commander in Chief and co-created both Raising the Bar and Murder in the First.

Bochco received 30 Emmy nominations during his illustrious career.
"Steven reinvented the television drama by creating and executive producing "Hill Street Blues" [in 1981]", said TV executive Warren Littlefield, who worked with Bochco at NBC. And in the first script they had me chaining myself to my desk, causing disruption in the squad room, and plunging the key to the lock of this chain down my blouse, and saying to Frank, "You want the key, Frank, come and get it.' I refused to do it", she said. Hill Street Blues debuted in 1981 in last place.
He is survived by his third wife, Dayna Kalins, his children Melissa Bochco, Jesse Bochco and Sean Flanagan, and two grandchildren. 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.
