I get your point about collaborative works, but The Wire, at least, is a bad example to make your case. From what I know of the writers of The Wire, Simon, Burns, Pelecanos, Lehane (and didn't Richard Price also do some work on it?), from their individual works, interviews and, in a couple of cases, personal conversations, they are a pretty consistent bunch in their social assumptions. Of course, that's not too surprising in a work that consciously set out to address social assumptions, so the creator, David Simon, hired people who would fit in with his vision.
