The article profiles Steven Bochco, writer, producer and creator of television programs in the U.S. Among the shows created by the producer are "Doogie Howser: M.D." and "NYPD Blue." According to him, the increasing scrutiny of the government on television programming makes it more difficult to create groundbreaking programs. Bochco decided to sign a three-year deal with Touchstone Television and is developing five programs.
