Stephen J. Cannell Dies
Stephen J. Cannell, writer-producer of many of my favorite TV shows (The Rockford Files, The A-Team, Hunter, Booker...), died last night of complications from melanoma. He was 69. Since the late 1990s, he had become known as a novelist, most notably for the Shane Scully novels. He frequently guest-starred on Castle as himself. I've often tweeted my admiration for him, and I hope he saw some of those posts. I will always remember his enthusiasm and encouraging words.
