"The Wire" is a one-hour HBO drama set and produced in Baltimore Maryland. It was created, produced, and primarily written by David Simon. Each season details a different aspect of the city: drug trade, the port, city government, school system, and the media/newspaper. The show is recognized for its realistic portrayal of urban life, artistic ambitions, and uncommonly deep exploration of sociological themes. It has frequently been cited by critics as one of the greatest television series of all time.
