R.I.P. David Mills

David Mills was an Emmy award winning writer whose hands touched some of the most complex drama on television, including NYPD Blue and the HBO series The Corner, The Wire and the upcoming New Orleans based drama Treme.

Mills challenged stalwart TV Veteran David Milch’s contention that African-Americans could not write good drama and won the opportunity to write for a hit network series. He kept writing, kept creating, and kept innovating until his untimely death a few days ago.

He was 48.

He will be missed.

You can read a comprehensive eulogy on this great writer at The HBO Treme Site.
