Gotcha. But George is only one of many on The Wire (I don't mean to downplay his contribution, just acknowledge those of others). Following his work as a reporter at the Baltimore Sun, David Simon wrote two books before moving on to TV, Homicide and The Corner (technically David was already doing some work on the show Homicide while writing The Corner), the latter of which was a collaboration with Ed Burns. And George is not the only novelist working on the set. Richard Price and Denis Lehane have also worked on the show.
