Viewers can now see one of the best TV series of all time in a different light.
Entertainment Weekly reports that The Wire will be re-mastered in HD on HBO. David Simon’s series aired from 2002 to 2008. The promo you can watch below claims that a replay marathon of the series is set to begin on HBO Signature this month, but HBO says that the promo ran prematurely and that the series won’t be airing this month after all. No further mention on possible air dates has been given.
The Wire, a crime drama series about the struggles of police and journalists in Baltimore, is regarded by many as one of the greatest and simultaneously most underappreciated shows of all time. You can still stream the whole series on HBO Go, iTunes and Amazon Prime while you wait for the re-mastered episodes.
