"NYPD BLUE" CREATOR'S SHOCKING REVELATION

The show’s creator, David Milch, recently revealed that he has Alzheimer’s disease.

He said of the diagnosis, "As best I understand it, which is minimal, I have a deterioration in the organization of my brain and it is progressive, and in a way discouraging. In more than some ways, in every way, I can think of."

Milch said he began to notice the symptoms five years ago when he saw changes in his behavior and in his ability to focus. His family and friends also noticed that he was showing a shorter temper than usual.
