‘The Wire’ Creator Says He Won’t Film In Texas Amid Abortion Law

David Simon, the creator of The Wire, says he won’t film in Texas because of the state’s new abortion laws.

He revealed that he’s working on a new project based on events in Texas, but won’t shoot there.

He said on Twitter, “As an employer, this is beyond politics.”

He added, “I’m turning in scripts next month on an HBO non-fiction miniseries based on events in Texas, but I can’t and won’t ask female cast/crew to forgo civil liberties to film there. What else looks like Dallas/Ft. Worth?”
