Tom Fontana, who helped “Wire” creator David Simon adapt his book "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets" into NBC’s 1993 cop drama, is reteaming with Simon for a proposed HBO miniseries based on James L. Swanson's book “Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer.”
Simon, who oversaw the HBO miniseries “The Corner” and “Generation Kill,” is also at work on “Treme,” an HBO series about post-Katrina New Orleans.
Fontana is no stranger to HBO either, having created its prison drama “Oz.”
