His agent and friend Peter Bendek told The Associated Press that Henry died at a Los Angeles area hospital. According to the Los Angeles Times, his death was caused by a heart attack.
“We are deeply saddened by our dear friend Henry Bromell, who has been part of the Showtime family for over a decade,” Showtime executives said in a statement regarding the producer, who worked on the Claire Danes and Damian Lewis-starring show since its premiere in 2011. “Henry was an immensely talented and prolific writer, director and showrunner, and his work on Brotherhood and Homeland was nothing short of brilliant.”
“His passion, warmth, humor and generosity will be greatly missed,” the statement continued. “Our hearts and thoughts go out to his wife and family.”
Henry was also a novelist and short-story writer. Beyond his work on Homeland and Brotherhood, he also worked on Northern Exposure, Homicide: Life on the Street, Chicago Hope, I’ll Fly Away and Rubicon.
He was really a wunderkind,” veteran writer-producer John Falsey, co-creator of Northern Exposure told the L.A Times. “His humor was never broad, always moving. He had a natural ear for dialogue.”
Henry is survived by his wife Sarah and two sons, William and Jake, according to Peter. Our thoughts remain with his family and friends during their time of loss
