Everybody Hates Chris


Is this a job for the Hawaii 5-0?

Sitcom producer Aron Abrams, whose credits included the since-shuttered Everybody Hates Chris  and Grounded for Life, was found dead in his Waikoloa, Hawaii, hotel room on Christmas morning.

He was 50.

Abrams was staying at the Fairmont Orchid Hotel with his wife, pediatric dentist Lynn Lempert, according to the Hawaii Tribune-Herald, which reported that paramedics arrived at the hotel at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday.

Police said there was no indication of foul play, but they are awaiting results from Friday's scheduled autopsy before making any conclusions.

Meanwhile, Deadline Hollywood has a source saying that it appears Abrams had a heart attack.

The veteran writer-producer's credits also include 3rd Rock From the Sun and King of the Hill. He shared a nomination for Best New Series for Everybody Hates Chris at the 2006 WGA Awards.
