The HBO series looks into the seedy side of Baltimore; money, drugs, politics and murder. A study on urban life in one of America’s toughest cities, each season of The Wire has focused on a different aspect of Baltimore, starting with the police force and the drug trade, then moving on to City Hall, the education system and concluding with the media. Over the course of these five seasons, David Simon has endeavoured to build a city.
