Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement upon the passing of her friend, Emmy-winning producer Steven Bochco.

"I was heartbroken over the weekend by the news of the passing of a true friend. A trailblazer of our time, Steven’s ambitious storytelling and ever-expanding appetite for testing boundaries transformed modern TV entertainment as we know it. 

“In addition to his distinguished career, he cared deeply about social and political issues in Los Angeles and the rest of the country. I was lucky to share many conversations with him about these issues over the course of our long friendship. 

“After valiantly fighting leukemia for years, Steven leaves behind a community and an industry changed forever. My thoughts today are with my dear friend Dayna, as well as Joanna and the rest of Steven’s friends and family. He will be absolutely be missed.”
