Show Me a Hero is the new HBO miniseries from The Wire‘s David Simon, directed by Paul Haggis, and starring Oscar Isaac, Winona Ryder, Jim Belushi, Alfred Molina, Catherine Keener, Shane from The Walking Dead, and a ton of familiar faces from The Wire and Treme. It’s about an effort to desegregate Yonkers, NY, by building housing projects in the white areas of town in the 80s. It goes even worse than you’d expect.
So far, it’s pretty good. The politicians are in a bind between a court order and an incredibly incensed public.
