2nd Annual Paleyfest New York Presents: "The Wire" Reunion

Here’s news to make fans of The Wire excited yet again. Back in September, a leaked trailer accidentally broke news that HBO was planning to air a digitally remastered version of The Wire, the first time the series would be available in a widescreen/HD format. Now, the network has confirmed the announcement, and will air a marathon of the entire remastered series. Starting December 26, HBO will air all five seasons of The Wire over a five day session.

After involving himself in the conversion process, Simon explains that the conversion effect isn’t always great.
