good read @e.point




Avon's story of the first season itself mirrors real-life investigations of Baltimore drug traffickers like "Little Melvin" Williams, Chin Farmer, Cookie Savage, Warren Boardley and Linwood Williams, each of which writer Ed Burns played a part in. The writers also drew from their experience of Baltimore in naming the characters. The Liberty Heights Barksdale family of five brothers is the source for the Barksdale family on the show.

Stringer's name is a composite of two real Baltimore criminals, Stringer Reed and Roland Bell.

Prop Joe: Wilkie Collins, a drug kingpin who hates violence; he provides the police with key information about what drug dealer was shooting at them so that they will not interfere with his business. He and his wife are subsequently murdered for his betrayal; his young son witnesses, and helps the police arrest Wilkie's murderer.

David Simon has said that Omar is based on Shorty Boyd, Donnie Andrews, Ferdinand Harvin, and Anthony Hollie, Baltimore stickup men between the 1980s and early 2000s who robbed drug dealers. Donnie Andrews later reformed, is married, and now helps troubled youths. In season 4 of The Wire Andrews plays one of the two men Butchie sends to help Omar in prison, in the episodes "Margin of Error" and "Unto Others" and Omar later meets up with him at Blind Butchie's in "That's Got His Own" while planning the big drug robbery.

Bubbles was the nickname of a real police informant, whose name has not been made public at the request of his family. The real Bubbles was noted as having an incredible memory for faces, and was often very helpful in pointing out drug dealers to police. David Simon met with him twice shortly before his death from AIDS, intending to write an article about him. He ended up turning it into an obituary.
Royo was once approached by a real drug addict and given a package of heroin while filming as he appeared to "need a fix more than" the addict. Royo calls this his "street oscar.

The character is named after real life Baltimore resident Nathan "Bodie" Barksdale.

Just more proof to why this show is above and beyond all the other phony sh*t on television and WAAAAAAY ahead of it's time...The Wire deserves far more recognition than it has been given credit for...and not just NAACP Awards...this show's content and authenticity alone should be getting them awards as opposed to the fake s**t portrayed in "The Sopranos" and "Grey's Anatomy" that gets passed off as a REAL life drama....f**k outta here...


I agree about it being ahead of its time ..
