The Wire – an interview by Nick Hornby

Here is a fascinating interview by Nick Hornby with David Simon, the creator and producer of the HBO TV series The Wire. This is my all time favourite TV series (and one of Nick Hornby’s favourites as well). It is a triumph of writing and TV making – demonstrating all of the advantages of the medium (especially over film). It is a beautifully crafted and written story that lasts an entire season – not just a series of stories that last only one hour long episode. If you are a fan of the TV series then this is well worth taking the time to read. It sets out the essence of the show (the cop show as Greek tragedy – who would have thought!).
