In the intersection between popular media and American culture and politics, this dissertation aims to examine how Simon’s serials engage in discussions about the constitution and future of the American city. In Simon’s own words “The Wire is dissent” and his series consistently speak to realities that are otherwise often ignored in much popular culture in the US. How often does one see a series taking a key interest in public housing and the historical roots of de facto segregated cities like Show Me a Hero? This dissertation aims at reading Simon’s series as a collected whole and examines how these series together form distinct interventions in public discourses in the US.
