From 2002 to 2008, HBO broadcast an original series that brought the grim realities of life on the Baltimore streets to the rest of the country's television screens. Almost everyone, fans and critics, agrees that The Wire was one of the best television shows ever.

In this episode of the Bill Moyers program, the host interviews David Simon, the man who created the gritty show. Simon understands Baltimore well because he spent time working as a journalist for the homicide section of the local newspaper. His discussion of the problems ailing urban America is insightful and informative. Anyone interested in understanding why the underclass has so much difficulty succeeding should watch this DVD.

Simon also talks about his writing career, in general. Viewers get to learn how to create a compelling storyline from one of the noted masters. Along with his television work, he is the author of the book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets.
