    Was the series named the Wire before the HBO series? Maybe a name change is appropriate?

    "JR - yes, very open to new scripts that come through the unsolicited script system or elsewhere - Mike Bartlett's multi-award winning play 'Not Talking' came straight through the unsolicited system, as did Stephen Riley's 'Birth and Death of Daylight', and many Wire writers come through to a commission via the range of work we do finding new writers across the UK."

    Paul, I totally agree with you.

    Fearless - no, unless an independent radio producer is willing to take it to the Commissioner

    Are The Wire's commissioning editors willing to look at scripts posted from overseas?
    Thanks

    Does that mean they are open to new scripts?
