From David Simon, creator and co-writer of HBO's triple Emmy-winning mini-series The Corner, this unvarnished, highly realistic HBO series follows a single sprawling drug and murder investigation in Baltimore. Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn. Episodes comprise: 'The Target', 'The Detail', 'The Buys', 'Old Cases', 'The Pager', 'The Wire', 'One Arrest', 'Lessons', 'Game Day', 'The Cost', 'The Hunt', 'Cleaning Up' and 'Sentencing'.
