Homicide creators to team up again for HBO.

Homicide: Life on the Streets was a brilliant series that launched the television careers of two very talented men: David Simon and Tony Fontana.

Simon, who wrote the book that the series was based on, went on to create The Wire and Generation Kill, while Fontana gave us the amazing Oz.

The two will come together for an HBO miniseries that looks at the manhunt for John Wilkes Booth.

Booth, I pray you are know, was the man that killed President Lincoln.

The series will be based on James L. Swanson’s book Manhunt.

As a fan of pretty much everything these two have done, I am thrilled at this reunion. I can’t imagine it being anything but stellar. Seriously, both of these guys rule.
