D. Watkins discusses episode five, which explores how the thin blue line of police loyalty shields some of Baltimore’s dirtiest cops from the consequences of their actions. The show’s executive producers, George Pelecanos (The Deuce) and David Simon (The Wire, The Deuce), comment on the inefficiency and violence of modern policing and the war on drugs. Watkins talks to Darrell Brett-Gibson about how his upbringing affected his opinion of police officers and how he came around to playing Jemell Rayam. Next, executive director Nina K. Noble and casting director Thea Washington discuss some behind-the-scenes details of shooting in Baltimore and building a cast and crew that includes many Baltimore locals. Then, director Reinaldo Marcus Green talks about this show being a “cousin” of The Wire and the responsibility of getting such a sensitive story right.
