The critically acclaimed and cancelled HBO series The Wire is the topic of a new class at Johns Hopkins University, located in Baltimore, where the drama was based.
The class was introduced this semester and used the Baltimore show as a way to look at the problems big cities in America face. Guest speakers have included former Baltimore commissioner Ed Norris, actors on the show, and show creator David Simon.
The class also utilizes the 60 episodes of the show, which was on air from 2002 through 2008, as its "textbook."
Would you take this class if you attended Johns Hopkins?
