HBO's "The Wire" is in the running for the 2008 Humanitas Prize in hour programming in television. According to the Humanitas website...

"We honor excellence in film & television writing. Stories that affirm the human person, probe the meaning of life, and enlighten the use of human freedom. The stories reveal common humanity, so that love may come to permeate the human family and help liberate, enrich and unify society."

Judging by the millions of die hard "Wire" fans out there, this show definitely fits into the criteria for this award. Congrats and good luck to the scribes of "The Wire." This sounds like the type of award that really means something.
