The Wire

This year marks the 20th anniversary of HBO’s crime drama The Wire. Creators David Simon and Ed Burns spent five seasons dissecting various institutions in Baltimore, producing what is now considered one of the best television series of all time. The large cast included many then-unknown actors who’ve gone on to become stars, like Idris Elba, Michael B. Jordan, Dominic West and the late Michael K. Williams.
