Running for seven seasons on NBC, Homicide: Life on the Street was a critically revered cop drama that won an unprecedented three Peabody Awards and an intensely passionate fan base, as it artfully limned an emotionally fraught band of brothers (and sisters). Based on David Simon’s nonfiction book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, the series followed homicide detectives adrift in inner-city Baltimore, fittingly named from the anglicized version of the Irish Baile an Tí Mhóir, meaning Town of the Big House. Along with NYPD Blue and Law & Order, it defined the sophisticated police drama for the nineties, but distinguished itself with fearless formal innovation and a predilection for excavating the doubts and vulnerabilities simmering beneath the surface of its characters. Join us as we reunite key members of the cast and creative team of one of the most influential and acclaimed dramas in television history.
