Stephen J. Cannell, the voracious writer-producer of dozens of series that included TV favorites "The Rockford Files," "The A-Team" and "The Commish," has died at age 69.
Cannell passed away at his home in Pasadena, Calif., on Thursday night from complications associated with melanoma, his family said in a statement on Friday.
"I never thought of myself as being a brilliant writer, and still don't," he said in the AP interview. "I'm a populist. With 'Rockford,' we were never trying to be important. And as thoroughly hated as it was by critics, I loved 'The A-Team.' I thought it was really cool."
He was a producer of the feature film updating "The A-Team," released earlier this year.
Cannell is survived by Marcia, his wife of 46 years, their three children, and three grandchildren.
I can not even begin to list all the shows this man was a part of that I completely and utterly loved. His talent will be greatly missed.
