Veteran TV writer-producer Henry Bromell has died of a heart attack. He was 66. Bromell went to the hospital yesterday afternoon after not feeling well, and suffered the heart attack there. At the time of his death, Bromell was an executive producer on Showtime/Fox21′s acclaimed series Homeland. He had been a member of the hit CIA drama’s all-star writing-producing staff since the beginning, first as a consulting producer, and shared in Homeland‘s best series Emmy win last year.
Bromell’s name should be familiar to fans of AMC’s late series, Rubicon.
