From the creators of The Wire, HBOs new mini-series "Generation Kill"

Ed Burns and David Simon are back at it again, this time tackling the war on terror.

Check out http://www.hbo.com/events/generationkill/ for a trailer.

From IMDB, "A Marine chronicles his experiences during the first wave of the American-led assault on Baghdad in 2003."

Looks like we're getting James Ransone, who played Ziggy on the second season of The Wire, as well as a familiar face or two from Oz. I didn't recognize anyone else in the trailer.

Personally, I'm looking forward to it. After The Wire, I'll check out anything Simon and Burns have done or will do.

I'll definitely tune in. Not sure what HBO's expectations are since the similarly-themed Over There failed to capture an audience on FX.

Definitely going to watch this. I'm kind of surprised they didn't try to get this out in April and have John Adams on in July, which to me would have made more sense.

These guys can do a show about earthworm wranglers and I'd give it a chance.
