David Simon

Simon in 2004 David Judah Simon (born February 9, 1960) is an American author, journalist, and television writer and producer best known for his work on ''The Wire''. He worked for the ''Baltimore Sun'' City Desk for twelve years (1982–95), wrote ''Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets'' (1991), and co-wrote ''The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood'' (1997) with Ed Burns. The former book was the basis for the NBC series ''Homicide: Life on the Street'' (1993–99), on which Simon served as a writer and producer. Simon adapted the latter book into the HBO mini-series ''The Corner'' (2000).

He was the creator, executive producer, head writer, and show runner for all five seasons of the HBO television series ''The Wire'' (2002–2008). He adapted the non-fiction book ''Generation Kill'' into a television mini-series, and served as the show runner for the project. He was selected as one of the 2010 MacArthur Fellows and named an ''Utne Reader'' visionary in 2011. Simon also created the HBO series ''Treme'' with Eric Overmyer, which aired for four seasons. Following ''Treme'', Simon wrote the HBO mini-series ''Show Me a Hero'' with journalist William F. Zorzi, a colleague first at ''The Baltimore Sun'' and again later on ''The Wire''.

In August 2015, HBO commissioned two pilots from Simon's company Blown Deadline Productions. The first drama, ''The Deuce'', about the New York porn industry in the 1970s and 1980s, stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and co-producer James Franco, and first aired in September 2017. The second drama is an untitled program exploring a "detailed examination of partisanship" and money in Washington politics, to be co-produced with Carl Bernstein. Provided by Wikipedia
