Stephen J. Cannell 1941-2010

Stephen J Cannell passed away today at the age of 69. He was the primary creative force behind The Rockford Files and is considered one of the most prolific and innovative TV producers and writers of his time. The list of shows he helped develop include Wiseguy, The Greatest American Hero, The A-Team, Baretta, Black Sheep Squadron, and Hunter. However, I think The Rockford Files will be considered his greatest achievement. Rest in peace Mr. Cannell.
