The producer of several 80's-era hit TV shows, has passed away due to his complications with melanoma. He was only 69 years old. [Frown]

He was best known for "The Rockford Files", "Hunter", "21 Jump Street", and "The A-Team".

Who can forget his company's logo, featuring him furiously typing away and throwing a sheet of paper in the air?

Very sad news, R.I.P. Stephen J. Cannell.
This man is a legend.

21 Jump Street is very good tv show and i loved Wiseguy (1987-1990).
I remember watching every episode.
I didn´t even know that it was released on dvd.

Never seen The A-Team but i own season 1 set.
That company logo is a classic.

Very sad news. He was the Giorgio Moroder of television. Talk about someone having the midas touch. He was a hero of mine. I'm sorry to see him go.
