Description

Season 1

From David Simon, creator and co-writer of HBO's triple Emmy-winning mini-series ""The Corner"", this unvarnished, highly realistic 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. Season one introduces two major groups of characters—the Baltimore police department and a drug dealing organization run by the Barksdale family.

Season 2

In this season, McNulty (Dominic West) has been demoted to harbour patrol, Daniels (Lance Reddick) is in the police archive dungeon, Prez (Jim True-Frost) is chafing in the suburbs and Greggs (Sonja Sohn) is stuck behind a desk. Meanwhile, on the docks of the Baltimore harbour, the rank and file scrounge for work and the union bosses take illegitimate measures to reinvigorate business, but a horrific discovery is about to blow the whole port inside out. While the detail is on ice, a new case begins.

Season 3

Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, The Wire captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn. Season 3 introduces Baltimore's local politicians and the upstart drug dealing Stanfield organization while continuing to examine the Barksdale Organization and the Baltimore Police Department.

Season 4

With the fall of Barksdale and the ascent of young Marlo Stanfield as West Baltimore's drug king, The Wire's fourth season continues to follow the money up the political ladder in the midst of a mayoral election that pits the black incumbent, Clarence Royce, against an ambitious white councilman, Tommy Carcetti.

Season 5

The Wire Season 5 concludes the award-winning TV series with a bang. The bodies are piling up in Homicide, but funds for police work have been diverted to the schools. Meanwhile, business is booming on the streets as the war between East and West Baltimore’s drug kings reaches a new intensity. McNulty is drinking again. Bubs is clean again. Omar is back with a vengeance and Carcetti is struggling to make a difference as Mayor. After taking us through the streets, the docks, the corridors of power and the schools, The Wire brings us to the Baltimore media, where the successes and tragedies of all of our favourite characters become ammunition in the battle for circulation figures.
