Homicide: Life On The Street

A mundane yet compelling look into the grim affairs of the Homicide Unit of the Baltimore Police Department. Shot entirely with handheld cameras on location in the Fells Point Community of Baltimore, it’s unlike most “cop shows” in that it lacks action-packed sequences involving car chases, gun fights and explosions. Instead, the episodes are focused on the actual investigative work required to close the case. Inspired by David Simon’s acclaimed non-fiction book, “Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets,” it’s been quoted as “the most reality-based police drama ever aired on television.”
