David Simon and Ed Burns Presents – Generation Kill

Generation KillPerhaps not completely the Wire related, but still noteworthy of this humble blog. The Wire creators David Simon and Ed Burns have been busy working as writers (both) and producer (Simon) of a new TV mini-series called Generation Kill.

According to the tiny information on IMDB, the show will be about a marine’s experience during the American-lead assault on Baghdad in 2003.

The movie is based on the book of the same name by Evan Wright, which got quite good reviews.

…showing the unsettling combination of feeble and vicious resistance put up by the Iraqi army, the Fedayeen militiamen and their Syrian allies against American forces bulldozing through towns and cities and into Baghdad.
– Publisher Weekly

And if there’s one thing that those guys have proved to the audience before, it’s that they will show us the war as authentic as possible – without the usual Hollywood dust added to make it more exciting and easier to comprehend.
