Homicide: Life on the Street

Runtime 45 mins

Mystery Drama Crime

Homicide: Life on the Street is an American police procedural television series chronicling the work of a fictional version of the Baltimore Police Departments Homicide Unit. It ran for seven seasons on NBC from 1993 to 1999, and was succeeded by a TV movie, which also acted as the de facto series finale. The series was originally based on David Simons book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Many of the characters and stories used throughout the show were based on events depicted in the book, which was also part of the basis for Simons own series, The Wire on HBO. Although Homicide featured an ensemble cast, Andre Braugher emerged as the series breakout star through his portrayal of Frank Pembleton. The show won Television Critics Association Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Drama in 1996, 1997, and 1998. It also became the first drama ever to win three Peabody Awards for best drama in 1993, 1995, and 1997. In 1997, the episode "Prison Riot" was ranked No. 32 on TV Guides 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time. In 2007, it was listed as one of Time magazines "Best TV Shows of All-TIME." In 1996 TV Guide named the series The Best Show Youre Not Watching. The show placed #46 on Entertainment Weeklys "New TV Classics" list.
