'We Own This City'


Corruption within the Baltimore Police Department takes center stage in We Own This City, debuting April 25 at 9 p.m. on HBO.

"You guys have locked up and beat on so many people, we can't get 12 in a box we're willing to trust," new trailer for the limited series previews. You can watch that trailer below.

We Own This City was developed by George Pelecanos and David Simon, and directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, chronicling the rise and fall of BPD's Gun Trace Task Force as the rise in pedestrian stops skyrockets and corruption abounds because drug prohibition and arrest quotas took precedence over real police work.

Based on Justin Fenton's non-fiction book of the same title, We Own This City reunites a number of members of The Wire team, returning them to Baltimore to dramatize how crime and cop work in that city have evolved since their former groundbreaking, Emmy Award-nominated series.

We Own This City stars Jon Bernthal, Wunmi Mosaku, Jamie Hector, Josh Charles, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Domenick Lombardozzi, Trey Chaney, Delaney Williams, Jermaine Crawford, Anwan Glover, Chris Clanton, Nathan Corbett, Maria Broom, Susan Rome, Michael Salconi, McKinley Belcher III, Dagmara Domińczyk, Rob Brown, Don Harvey, David Corenswet, Larry Mitchell, Ian Duff. and Lucas Van Engen. It is executive produced by Pelecanos, Simon, Green, Nina K. Noble, Ed Burns, and Kary Antholis, and co-executive produced by William F. Zorzi. Writers on the series include Pelecanos, Simon, Burns, Zorzi, and D. Watkins.
