Shared first writing credit with Rod Serling when he expanded Serling's A Slow Fade to Black, which aired in 1964 as part of Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre, into the 1967 theatrical release The Movie Maker, starring Rod Steiger. When Columbo began as a series, he wrote the award-winning opening script ("Murder by the Book"). The episode was directed by Steven Spielberg. Cowrote the 1972 sci-fi movie Silent Running. A career detour was Cop Rock, a cop-musical series that he cocreated and produced in 1990. The ambitious, over-the-top show---in which cops burst into song while fighting crime---lasted only three months. The man playing the violin on the TV logo for Steven Bochco Productions is in honor of his father, a concert violinist. Published the novel Death by Hollywood in 2003. Awards include the David Susskind Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998, the Directors Guild of America Diversity Award in 1999 and the Humanitas Prize in 1999. Son Jesse Bochco directed episodes of some of his shows, including Philly (2001-02) and Raising the Bar (2008-09).
