THE WIRE III (article first published : 2005-01-10)

Starting on January 10 on M-Net (just after the premiere movie), is televisionís most uncompromising, unvarnished and realistic police drama, The Wire. The series returns every Monday with an all-new case that, like last season, focuses on the vagaries of crime and law enforcement in Baltimore, Maryland.

The heat is on in Baltimore. The drug war is being lost, bodies are piling up, and a desperate mayor wants the crime rates down before the election. But the police department hasn't got any solutions. Wiretaps haven't worked. Neither have stakeouts or street busts. And no matter how hard the Baltimore police try, the drug dealers always seem to be one step ahead of the game. It's time to change the rules.

A wave of urban reform brings down the notorious Franklin Terrace public housing towers, forcing the Barksdale drug crew to find a new home on the streets of West Baltimore.
