Where it all started

The Sleuth Channel is currently re-airing the groundbreaking series Homicide: Life on the Street, based on David Simon’s book, Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Simon served as producer and writer for the critically-acclaimed series which, like The Wire, is set in Baltimore and filmed on location. Focusing on the Baltimore police department homicide unit, HLOTS features outstanding writing and a stellar ensemble cast, including Clark Johnson, who we’ll see playing the Sun’s city editor in The Wire this season. Good stuff, folks. Set the DVR, you won’t regret it.



  1. Meldrick’s back on the case? Sweet!

  2. you probably already know that he directed the very first two episodes of The Wire, right?

  3. Johnson’s also directing the Season 5 (and series) finale.
