There are so many different tributes out there across the internet to television icon Steven Bochco, but one of the most interesting to us comes via Neil Patrick Harris.

The TV producer had been diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia in 2014 and in the same year he had a transplant, which helped extend his life.

Bochco won 10 primetime Emmys and created hit TV shows including Hill Street Blues, LA Law, NYPD Blue and Doogie Howser, MD.

He attended the High School of Music and Arts before enrolling at the Carnegie Institute of Technology - now known as Carnegie Mello University - in 1961.

The recipient of virtually every imaginable industry award over his prestigious career, Bochco was nominated for an Emmy 30 times in his capacities as producer and writer, winning 10.

Following a number of quiet years, Bochco's biggest success, "NYPD Blue", arrived on ABC in 1993 and aired for 12 seasons.

The man who brought you the groundbreaking police series "Hill Street Blues" in 1981 to our TV screens has died.

With the rare exception of the few prime-time soaps, nearly every series up to that time - whether comedy or drama - made each episode freestanding, with a reset button for the one that came next. He was a pioneer, a gentleman, and gave me my first job in prime time tv. Rest well, sir. You will be missed.

In more recent years, Bochco became disenchanted with the major networks, primarily plying his trade in basic cable, including the TNT drama "Murder in the First". Bochco's spokesman, Phillip Arnold, had this to say.

Steven Bochco is survived by his wife of 17 years, Dayna; children Jesse, Melissa and Sean and grandchildren Stevie Rae and Wes.
