If you enjoyed The Wire, you may want to get this.
The Corner is like the bud of what would later bloom into The Wire. Based on the book “The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood” by David Simon and Ed Burns, Simon and David Mills turned the story into a TV series. Made in mock observational documentary style it’s the portrait of a family and their friends and street buddies in West Baltimore, in the midst of drug-slingers, crackheads, crime and poverty. You could say that The Corner is one aspect of the many that later got incorporated into the big picture that is The Wire. And a lot of the actors from The Corner got different roles for The Wire again — and sometimes you wouldn’t believe the career steps they’d made in the meantime. 6 episodes of goodness.
