It's been a while since I've written about The Wire, mainly because I've watched all the seasons now. And then, it moved from being an underground fav to a more mainstream level of popularity. So, it feels like everybody know knows about and loves The Wire.
There is an entire page of resources (articles, interviews, profiles, etc) about The Wire on the U.K Guardian website. It's a great catalogue for any fan of the show as well as newcomers.
It also includes a recent interview with actor Idris Elba, who has seen his star rise in the wake of the popularity brought him by the show. The latest is for the film Obsessed, which has been both a box office hit and critical disaster.
