Here I sit in the writers’ room of HBO’s “The Wire” in Baltimore. I’ll be writing Episode 5 of the upcoming season, thanks to my old bud David Simon.
This final season will be a shortened one – just 10 episodes. They'll start filming in a few weeks. I cannot reveal anything about the storyline, except to say that it’ll surely be the funniest season ever of “The Wire”… if you like your humor dark. We’re talking the “Dr. Strangelove” of police procedurals here.
Attention “Homicide” fans… I can reveal this: Clark Johnson will have a prominent role on “The Wire” this coming season, as the city editor of Baltimore’s daily newspaper.
