Oh man, this is so sad. Producer-Director Scott Brazil, one of the men behind the fabulous show The Shield has died at the age of 50. Brazil died Monday of respiratory failure due to Lou Gehrig's disease and lyme disease complications, FX Networks spokesman John Solberg said Wednesday. Brazil had been a producer on Hill Street Blues and also directed episodes of "Nip/Tuck," "Grey's Anatomy," "CSI: Miami," "NCIS," "JAG," "Nash Bridges" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
I am a huge fan of The Shield and a lot of Brazil's work. He was a talented guy. This is such a damn shame. RIP.
