TRAY CHANEY: "The Wire" was definitely before its time, you know? And while the show was airing from 2002 to 2008, it wasn't really receiving a lot of praise. But like I said, with it being before its time, and what you just mentioned, if it was to air again, like, tomorrow, you would see that the same issues that's been going on that David Simon and then pointed out years ago, they're still going on today. So it was definitely relatable back then, and it's still relatable in this day and age in 2022.

Now, it's right at our fingertips. You could look at your phone. You can go to Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, and any of these sites, and it's just a stream. You know, so it's just-- with the whole NFT business and everything, it's just really changed. And it's almost like we have to adapt and adjust to the times that's going on right now. "We Need to Talk" is written, produced, directed by a good friend of mine, Todd Wolfe. It's a rom-com. Right now, it is available on all digital streaming platforms. And that's the way-- just like with music, that's the way that it's able to connect with more people because more people have access straight on their phone.
