Television producer and writer Henry Bromell, who was part of the team that picked up an Emmy for Showtime's "Homeland", has died, CNN's confirmed.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Bromell passed away Monday at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California, at the age of 65.
A TV veteran, Bromell is credited with writing, directing and executive producing a number of programs throughout his career, which spans more than two decades. The Times notes that Bromell's background as a novelist and short story writer "brought a literary quality" to his small-screen work.
In addition to Showtime's addictive series about a bipolar CIA agent and a duplicitous war vet, Bromell has worked on "Northern Exposure," "I'll Fly Away," "Chicago Hope," "Rubicon" and "Brotherhood."
"We are deeply saddened at the loss of our dear friend Henry Bromell, who has been a part of the Showtime family for over a decade," the network told CNN in a statement. "Henry was an immensely talented and prolific writer, director and showrunner, and his work on 'Brotherhood' and 'Homeland' was nothing short of brilliant. His passion, warmth, humor and generosity will be greatly missed. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his wife and family."
According to Deadline, Bromell had personal experience to pull from for his work on "Homeland," as his father worked for the CIA. His script work on the season two episode "Q&A," which featured an intense interrogation, set a record for viewership, the industry website says.
In a statement, "Homeland" executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon described Bromell as a “profoundly decent and generous man,” as well as a "great writer and a great friend."
"No matter how crazy things got, when he was in the room, you knew everything was going to be okay," their statement continued. "Everybody here at 'Homeland' is grieving, and we will miss him beyond words.”

Is it just me or does this article not say what he died from?
It was in lots of the papers. He was swimming off the coast and got attacked by a shark. Poor guy.
It was a heart, not a shark. He was attacked by a heart.
My thoughts exactly who writes a story about someone dying but doesn't address the how, even if it's unknown.
Guy died, unless you knew him personally what does the "how" matter?
@ Pointless1, using that logic, then why is this even a story. 99% + of the world didn't know this person personally, so why even write it at all? but if you are gonna write a story be complete about it.
I agree, why can't they just say what they died from, that's what I want to know. So I did research and it was a heart attack.
Did you know Denzel Washington was on St Elsewhere? Also Mark Harmon, David Morse, Stephen Furst, Terrance Knox, etc. Many big named stars got their start on the drama. It was one if the best shows ever.
I'm not bulimic. I'm a good eater. Seconds for me, please.
ERLICH, GET BACK TO OR 7, STAT!
St Elsewhere was a GREAT show. Ed Begley Jr, Howie Mandell, David Morse, Cynthia Sikes. It was incredibly good.
What a talent! He'll be missed.
Chicago Hope was a great show, and the original hospital drama. It was far better than ER ever was.
St. Elsewhere was better.
Great show. RIP
