David Mills, a staff writer and co-executive producer of the upcoming HBO drama “Treme,” died of a brain aneurysm Tuesday in New Orleans, an HBO spokesman confirmed Wednesday morning.
A former newspaper feature writer, Mills went on to write for some of the finest TV dramas of the era, including “Homicide: Life on the Street,” “NYPD Blue,” “ER” and “The Wire.”
Mills was 49 years old.
Wow, what a loss.
