Synopsis: Set in Baltimore, this show centers around the city's inner-city drug scene. It starts as mid-level drug dealer, D'Angelo Barksdale beats a murder rap. After a conversation with a judge, Det. James McNulty has been assigned to lead a joint homicide and narcotics team, in order to bring down drug kingpin Avon Barksdale. Avon Barksdale, accompanied by his right-hand man Stringer Bell, enforcer Wee-Bey and many lieutenants (including his own nephew, D'Angelo Barksdale), has to deal with law enforcement, informants in his own camp, and competition with a local rival, Omar, who's been robbing Barksdale's dealers and reselling the drugs. The supervisor of the investigation, Lt. Cedric Daniels, has to deal with his own problems, such as a corrupt bureaucracy, some of his detectives beating suspects, hard-headed but determined Det. McNulty, and a blackmailing deputy. The show depicts the lives of every part of the drug "food chain", from junkies to dealers, and from cops to politicians.
The first season of The Wire (2002) concentrated on the
often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore
drug ring headed by Avon Barksdale and his lieutenant, Stringer
In Seasons Two and Three, as the Barksdale investigation
escalated, new storylines involving pressures on the working
class and the city's political leadership were introduced.
Season Four focused on the stories of several young boys in the
public school system, struggling with problems at home and the
lure of the corner - set against the rise of a new drug empire
in West Baltimore and a new Mayor in City Hall.
The fifth and final season of The Wire centers on the media's
role in addressing - or failing to address - the fundamental
political, economic and social realities depicted over the course
of the series, while also resolving storylines of the numerous
characters woven throughout the narrative arc of the show.
