MOYERS & COMPANY
January 31, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Public Television, Check local listings

 
Before David Simon was a TV writer and producer, creating such brilliant series as The Wire and Treme, he was a newspaper reporter – covering the police beat in Baltimore in an eye-opening experience that inspired Homicide: Life on the Street. In this new installment of Bill Moyers’ talk show, Simon applies the same skills he used so surgically and perceptively in all those TV series – taking the time to probe and explain, in human terms, the various institutions that shape poverty, crime, hope and hopelessness, and applies them to the larger canvas of America itself, right on the heels of President Obama’s 2014 State of the Union Address. Moyers & Company airs from Friday to Sunday on local public TV stations; to find it in your local area, check the BillMoyers.com website.
