    One of television’s most critically acclaimed dramas, The Wire delves deeply in the morass of the drug world, the corruption surrounding the seaport system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system and the print news media. Driven by an appetite for dealing out justice, Detective James “Jimmy” McNulty (Dominic West, The Devil’s Whore, The Hour) defies anyone he has to for the sake of the cases he investigates.


    Leading the Baltimore Police Department’s team of criminal investigators is Lieutenant Cedric Daniels (Lance Reddick, Lost, Fringe), a man who has a brilliant career ahead of him. A dedicated officer with some off-the-job issues, Detective Shakima “Kima” Greggs (Sonja Sohn, Cold Case, Body of Proof) often falls victim to the jaundice and envy of her colleagues. She finds a loyal ally in Bubbles (Andre Royo, Heroes, Elementary), a drug addict who fights his way through West Baltimore, trying for a little dignity in a life that offers little of the sort. Thomas “Herc” Hauk (Domenick Lombardozzi, 24, Chicago Fire) and Ellis Carver (Seth Gilliam, The Good Wife, Teen Wolf) are at home on the streets, shackling law breakers after giving them a good hammering. As for Lester Freamon (Clarke Peters, Treme, Person of Interest) and Roland “Prez” Pryzbylewski (Jim True-Frost, Medium, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), they have the knack of noticing tiny but important details and following paper trails, respectively.


    These investigators are supervised by Deputy Commissioner Ervin H. Burrell (Frankie Faison, Lie to Me, Banshee) and Major William A. “Bill” Rawls (John Doman, Damages, Rizzoli & Isles). A tough woman, Assistant State’s Attorney Rhonda Pearlman (Deirdre Lovejoy, The Closer, Numb3rs) acts as the legal liaison between the squad and the courthouse. Still, the one who made the case tick is Judge Daniel Phelan (Peter Gerety, Brothers & Sisters, Prime Suspect).


    On the other side of the law is Avon Randolph Barksdale (Wood Harris, House, Southland), a former amateur boxer turned drug lord. His criminal organization comprises Russell “Stringer” Bell (Idris Elba, The Office, Luther), Avon Barksdale’s second-in-command, D’Angelo “D” Barksdale (Larry Gilliard, Jr., Army Wives, The Walking Dead), Avon’s nephew, Roland “Wee-Bey” Brice (Hassan Johnson, NYPD Blue, Entourage), Barksdale’s lieutenant, Malik “Poot” Carr (Tray Chaney, Dead Money, Masterminds), Preston “Bodie” Broadus (J. D. Williams, The Sopranos, Sex and the City) and Wallace (Michael B. Jordan, Burn Notice, Parenthood), his loyal drug dealers, Omar Devone Little (Michael K. Williams, CSI: NY, Community), a notorious Baltimore stick-up man, and many others who are waiting to be discovered.
