The Corner

The Corner

The Corner was a reality based mini-series made by HBO. The stories take place on the gritty streets of West Baltimore, Maryland where director Charles S. Dutton grew up. The show's focus was on the McCullough family and just how difficult it is to get off drugs. The six episodes chronicle a year in the lives of 15-year-old DeAndre McCullough, his mother Fran Boyd, and his father Gary McCullough, as well as other addicts. Gary, who was once a successful investor, is now a heroin user. His now estranged wife Fran who actually got Gary on drugs in the first place, is struggling to find a way to get clean. Their son, De'Andre, is also caught up in the struggle, as he sells drugs on the corners just to make money to feed his family.

Each episode is told through flashbacks and "interviews" local characters throughout. The show is considered by many to be the civilian version of HBO's critically acclaimed series, The Wire, which is also created and written by David Simon.
