1 month ago 43

The much anticipated We Own This City premiered on HBO, with the creators of the legendary show The Wire, David Simon and George Pelecanos, taking the helm. With the same creators also came the return of some of the cast of The Wire for parts in We Own This City. The news of these returning actors bought a huge amount of excitement that We Own This City could reach incredible heights. The Punisher and The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal also appears as the lead character Wayne Jenkins, really rounding out We Own This City’s star-studded cast.

We Own This City is based on the staggering true story of the rise and fall of The Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task and the corruption ingrained within. An investigation led to the department being arrested in one of the country’s biggest and most shocking scandals. Portraying real-life characters is always complicated, so the way that the actors represent them is set to be pivotal to how We Own This City is received. The Wire was well-received by both critics and viewers, and the strong cast was instrumental in making sure that it was a success. Having those actors return to play characters in We Own This City can only be a positive aspect.

The Wire had a number of seasons to flesh out its characters and develop them, but in We Own This City these characters are thrust upon the audience much more directly due to the fact that We Own This City is a mini-series.
