In the projects. On the docks. In City Hall. In the schools. And now, in the media. The places and faces change, but the game remains the same. HBO presents the fifth--and final--season of this acclaimed drama series that focuses on the vagaries of crime, law enforcement, politics and the media in Baltimore, MD. In the final season, the series expands its focus into the media--specifically the role of newspapers in big-city bureaucracy--as it follows a newspaper staff as they struggle to maintain integrity and meet deadlines in the face of budget cuts and staff reductions. The ensemble cast includes Dominic West, Lance Reddick, Sonja Sohn, Wendell Pierce, Clarke Peters and Seth Gilliam.
