US Hit cop show The Wire is to get a UK terrestial screening at last. The critically acclaimed show produced by HBO is to be shown on BBC2 although no dates have been given but it expected to start this spring with daily episodes.
The Wire which is based on life in Baltimore sees the city through the lives of cops, politicians, drug lords and journalists. The show has already been aired in the UK on the sci-fi satellite channel FX but its debut on BBC2 will see it reach a greater proportion of the UK's TV viewership.
The Wire ran for 5 season (60 episodes) . If you can't wait enjoy a clip of the show. Personally I am really looking forward to this, hope it lives up to the hype.
