Author and television writer Ned Vizzini, who achieved fame at a young age but also wrote openly about his struggles with depression, took his own life Thursday in Brooklyn, said a spokeswoman for the chief medical examiner of New York. He was 32. His brother, Daniel, said he jumped from the roof of his parents' home, according to an Associated Press report.

Abrams as an executive producer.
