I assumed –mistakenly– that The Wire was done as a series. Wrong. Season #4 starts in 2006:
The first season looked at the national drug war through the microcosm of a West Baltimore housing project, and the second season focused on a longshoremen’s union and its struggle to survive. In its third season, the drama developed its portrait of a fictional Baltimore by exploring the place of the political leadership in addressing a city’s problems. With the Barksdale investigation concluded, the fourth season of THE WIRE will expand its focus to include a look at the role of the educational system in an urban environment.
