The Wire

Set in Baltimore, “The Wire” is a crime show dealing with various aspects of the city, including the drug trade, the government, the school system, and more. Created and written by author and former police reporter David Simon, the show has been praised for its realism and exploration of sociopolitical themes. The show’s use of non-famous character actors and gritty portrayals are what made it a standout series during its five-season run in the ‘00s.
