The Wire Bible, Scripts

In HBO, Scripts, The Wire on 04/17/2009 at 1:39 pm

Came across this in a few places: 1, 2.

Someone managed to get ahold of three scripts for HBO‘s The Wire and what is essentially David Simon‘s 79 page outline for the series. It’s been dubbed The Wire Bible.

The Wire was possibly the most challenging show ever on TV. It was horribly under appreciated until it’s final season, so it’s great to see it getting the recognition it deserves, even if it is postmortem.
