NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Emmy-winning writer-producer Henry Brommel, who worked on "Homeland," "Homicide" and other shows, has died of a heart-related ailment. He was 65.

Brommel, who shared in the Emmy win last year when "Homeland" was named Outstanding Drama series, died in a hospital Monday. He had previously worked on shows including the acclaimed "Homicide: Life on the Street," "That's Life," "Brotherhood" and "Rubicon."

He also served as showrunner for the latter two shows.

Among his recent work was an interrogation episode of "Homeland" last season that is likely to be an Emmy submission this year.

Brommel was a client of UTA for two decades, and was represented by Jay Sures and Peter Benedek.

"Henry was a profoundly decent and generous man. A great writer and a great friend," said "Homeland" executive producers Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon in a statement. "No matter how crazy things got, when he was in the room, you knew everything was going to be okay. Everybody here at 'Homeland' is grieving, and we will miss him beyond words."

Showtime added that it was "deeply saddened at the loss of our dear friend Henry Bromell, who has been a part of the Showtime family for over a decade. 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. Our hearts and thoughts go out to his wife and family.

Added Twentieth Century Fox and Fox TV: "We were lucky to work with Henry on and off for the past 18 years. He was a supremely talented writer and as kind and warm a person as you could ever meet. He will be deeply missed at the studio and on 'Homeland.' Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife and children."
