Prison Break producer found dead

OMG!

'Prison Break' producer dies in Chicago

CHICAGO, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- The producer of Fox TV's hit series "Prison Break" was found dead of an apparent drug overdose in his room at Chicago's Drake Hotel.

White powder, believed to be either heroin or cocaine, was found in the 6th floor room with Matthew Houbrick, 42, of Calabasas, Calif., Monday afternoon, sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.

A police source said a Hollywood producer had asked hotel staff to check on Houbrick after he had not been seen for a while. It was unknown how long he had been dead.

Houbrick was in Chicago for the filming of "Prison Break," which is shot in the nearby Joliet Correctional Center.

He worked as supervising producer on the WB's "Charmed" as well as "7th Heaven," "The Love Boat: The Next Wave" and "Pacific Palisades."

I've read 2 versions of this story and one said he was a producer, but another said he was an accountant. So I wonder which one is correct.

I've seen a lot of conflicting news stories. Guess we'll find out the real story soon.

I know! I'm reading conflicting reports that he was just an accountant which means less impact on the show? Who knows? Still terrible!

And looks like I'm missing you tonight unless you're online when I get back. But I have a surprise for you. Look in my LJ. Post #25 today, LOL.
