Television Producer, Writer, and Novelist. He conceived and produced iconic television shows such as "The A-Team," "21 Jump Street" and "The Rockford Files." Cannell also created or co-created almost forty television series including "Baretta," "The Greatest American Hero,", "Hardcastle and McCormick," and "Wiseguy." Most memorable to viewers of his shows was the closing logo of his production company. It features him typing, then throwing the sheet from his typewriter whereas it animates to become his company logo against a black screen (the single sheet of paper lands on a larger stack of paper forming the letter C). The author of over fifteen books, his latest novel, "The Prostitutes' Ball" was due to be released in October 2010. He passed away at his home in Pasadena due to complications associated with melanoma. (bio by: katzizkidz)
