Like The Wire? Maybe you’ll like Brick City

I’ve not seen it, but for lovers of The Wire, there’s an attempt to do a real-life documentary series equivalent over on the US’s Sundance Channel. Called Brick City, it follows Newark, New Jersey’s mayor Cory A Booker, various citizens on the front lines, developers, gang members and youth mentors.

In case you don’t know Newark ain’t Baltimore, but it’s not Manhattan either. I’ve no idea if this is going to be a puff piece or not, but I thought I’d mention it out of interest.
