Los Angeles - A representative for Henry Bromell, an executive producer for the TV series Homeland, says Bromell has died.

Bromell's long-time agent and friend, Peter Benedek, said Bromell died on Monday at a Los Angeles area hospital. The cause of death may have been a heart attack, Benedek said on Tuesday.

Last year, Bromell shared in Emmy and Golden Globe best-drama awards for Showtime's Homeland. In 1992, he won a Humanitas Prize for the TV drama I'll Fly Away.

The 66-year-old Bromell was "an immensely talented and prolific" writer and producer, Showtime said in a statement. His other TV credits included Northern Exposure, Chicago Hope, Rubicon and Brotherhood.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah, and sons William and Jake, according to his agent.

Funeral plans weren't immediately announced.
