After one episode of The WireÂŽ you’ll be hooked. After three, you’ll be astonished by the precision of its storytelling. After viewing all 13 episodes of the HBOÂŽ series’ remarkable first season, you’ll be cheering a bona-fide American masterpiece. Series creator David Simon was a veteran crime reporter from The Baltimore Sun who co-wrote the book that inspired TV’s Homicide, and cowriter Ed Burns was a Baltimore cop, lending impeccable street-cred to an inner-city Baltimore saga (and companion piece to The Corner) that Simon aptly describes as “a visual novel” and “a treatise on institutions and individuals” as opposed to a conventional good-vs.-evil police procedural. Owing a creative debt to the novels of Richard Price (especially Clockers), the series opens as maverick Detective Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West, in a star-making role) is tapping into a vast network of drugs and death around southwest Baltimore’s deteriorating housing projects. With a mandate to get results ASAP, a haphazard team is assembled to join McNulty’s increasingly complex investigation, built upon countless hours of electronic surveillance.
From executive producers Stephen Merchant (The OfficeÂŽ, ExtrasÂŽ, The Ricky Gervais ShowÂŽ), Lee Eisenberg, and Gene Stupnitsky comes an HBOÂŽ comedy series, Hello Ladies. Stuart Pritchard (Merchant) is a gawky Englishman searching for the woman of his dreams in Los Angeles. Single and desperate to mingle, Stuart is obsessed with infiltrating the glamorous world of beautiful people. He doggedly hits the LA social scene in search of someone special, often in the company of pals Wade (Nate Torrence), whoâs in the throes of a divorce, and Kives (Kevin Weisman), a charismatic paraplegic who fares far better with the ladies than either of them. At home, Stuart has an easy rapport with his attractive roommate Jessica (Christine Woods), though it is clear sheâs not romantically interested in him. Stuartâs perfect someone may be out there, but he might have set his sights just a little too high.
The series concludes with an 80-minute special, Hello Ladies: The Movie. This movie, like the series, puts Stuart in a number of hilariously cringe-worthy situations, while exploring whether Stuart can actually grow as a person and leave his shallow ideals behind.
