Eric Bercovici, the screenwriter who adapted and produced James Clavell's novel Shogun into an epic mini-series, has died, aged 80.
He passed away at his home in Hawaii on Thursday (20Feb14).
Shogun was a critically-savaged ratings winner when it aired in the U.S. in 1980, and became the biggest success of Bercovici's career.
The writer was the son of screenwriter Leonardo Bercovici. He studied at Yale University and set out to follow in his father's footsteps, but his own screenwriting career was derailed when his dad was blacklisted as part of Hollywood's MCCarthy-era communist witchhunt.
Bercovici opted to work in Europe and wrote episodes of I Spy and The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
