David Mills, the creator of “The Wire”, “ER” and many other famed gritty TV dramas, died Tuesday in New Orleans, while working on the set of his upcoming HBO series ‘Treme,’ his family and colleagues confirmed Wednesday. He was 48. The Emmy Award winning writer was on the set of his upcoming HBO series “Treme” when he lost consciousness….slumped in the chair and never regained consciousness, according to his friend and frequent writing partner David Simon. Mills died from an apparent brain aneurysm. He will be missed; Mills was a true fan of hip-hop, if you remember his famed interview with rapper/activists Sista Souljah’s in 1992 “Call to Arms”, a controversial piece where Sista Souljah explored racial tensions between blacks and whites after the L.A. riots. Take a look back at some of Mills’ best work.
