In addition to his three most famous shows, the 10-time Emmy Award victor also was behind the Neil Patrick Harris ABC comedy-drama "Doogie Howser, M.D." and the TNT drama "Murder in the First".
Although major TV successes would later elude him in his advancing years, Bochco remained highly sought after in the television industry, working on Commander in Chief, an ABC drama starring Geena Davis as the first female USA president and Over There, an FX series revolving around soldiers in Iraq and their families back in America.
Bochco was nominated for 30 Primetime Emmys and won 10, along with four Peabody Awards. He attended NYU and subsequently Carnegie Institute of Technology, receiving a degree in theater.
"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. Bochco relayed a story that he learned early on in his career and it really seems to be something that he has stuck to, as many in the industry will attest. He stayed at Universal for 12 years.
Bochco gave Kelley his first TV writing job on the show. One of the most valuable lessons I ever had. In one of the highest-profile tiffs, his rift with David Caruso during the first season of "NYPD Blue" led to the actor's exit, a considerable gamble for a series in its first season.

This reverses an Obama-era directive that allowed for the automatic release of pregnant immigrants who were placed in detention. Pregnant women I spoke with in ICE custody often didn't get appropriate nourishment, medical care, or prenatal vitamins.
Oklahoma teachers share reasons for walking out despite new tax
Oklahoma teachers haven't had a raise in a decade of Republican control and they won raises of between 15 and 18 percent. Those tax increases on tobacco, gas, diesel fuel and the gross production tax will go into effect August 1.
Bochco knowingly set out to establish new, more permissive standards beginning in the 1980s for what was allowed on television in terms of language and nudity with then-ABC Entertainment chief Iger, beginning with NYPD Blue. "We were certainly aware of advancing the agenda".
"I will miss Steve terribly", Spielberg said in a statement. "But a dozen years later [in 'NYPD Blue"], there's everything to wring from that old towel because the prevailing attitudes of the society shift".
Bochco is credited with changing the face of US TV drama, starting the heyday of NBC and ABC with crime shows such as LA Law, NYPD Blue and the medical comedy Doogie Howser, MD. His second wife was Barbara Bosson, who co-starred in Hill Street Blues.
Bochco is survived by his sister Joanna Frank, who played Sheila Brackman, the wife of Douglas Brackman Jr. - her real-life husband Alan Rachins - on "L.A. Law"; Bochco's wife of 17 years, Dayna; and his children Jesse, Jeffrey and Melissa.
