The original treatment for The Wire by David Simon

December 31, 2009

THANKS to Sean from the Soul of Man blog (listed here) for finding this, the original treatment for The Wire submitted to HBO and written by David Simon.

It’s incredible.
I’ll write more about it over the next few days.
All the best and happy new year Gobshites.

    Just read the whole thing. Incredible, not much can catch me just as I am going to sleep and then hold my attention for an hour or more. I love the stuff they didn't use/changed for the final recordings. As an aspiring screenwriter, this rocks big time. What a find!

    Love the description of 'Stringy' Bell. And couldn't imagine McCardle instead of McNulty. Agree its a great insight into the creative process.
