About the David Simon Interview

ABOUT ME:

I'm David Simon, a Baltimore-based journalist, author and television producer. I'm a former crime reporter for the Baltimore Sun, and the creator of HBO's The Wire, which depicts the political and socioeconomic fissures in an American city. My other television credits include the NBC drama Homicide and HBO’s The Corner, Generation Kill and Treme. My most recent project, Show Me A Hero, an HBO miniseries, depicts the 1987-93 housing desegregation battle that divided Yonkers, N.Y.

I'm currently in production on the upcoming HBO drama, The Deuce, which follows the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. I've also authored two books of narrative non-fiction, "Homicide" and "The Corner," and am a 2010 MacArthur Fellow. AMA.

EDIT:

I'll be on just a shade after 12:30 PM ET. Go ahead and ask me your Q's though.

SECOND EDIT:

I'm here and answering your questions. Have at it.

FINAL EDIT:

That's it for me today, but that was cool. Appreciative of your questions and interest. Let's do it again sometime. Be well.
