Sink me! Creator Of The A Team Dies At 69.

Sad day for all of the crew here at HMS Friday as Stephen J. Cannell a prolific televison writer and producer has passed away at the rather premature age of 69. A man responsible for creating such amazing TV which shaped, influenced and inspired many a Saturday afternoon, his list of impressive credits include: The Rockford Files, 21 Jump Street, Wiseguy, The Commish, The Greatest American Hero, Silk Stalkings, The A-Team, Hunter, Baretta, and the awesome Hardcastle & McCormick.

Apparently Mr Cannell was dyslexic and relied upon other writers known to him as his ‘mop and pail’ crew to tidy up his work before submission. He passed away at his home in Pasadena on Thursday due to complications from melanoma. If you want to know more chart a course for HERE.
