David Simon Getting Career Achievement Award at WGA East
The creator of "Treme" and "The Wire" will be feted at the East Coast kudos on Feb. 1.
David Simon is set to be honored at the New York iteration of the 2014 Writers Guild Awards. The creator of HBO shows Treme and The Wire and a member of WGA East since 1995, Simon will get the Ian McClellan Hunter Award for Career Achievement during the Feb. 1 show.
"David Simon's distinguished career is a celebration of his ability to combine the street smarts of the cityside newspaper reporter he once was with the creative imagination of a novelist," said WGA East president Michael Winship. "He crafts compelling stories about the heartache and strife of urban America, depicting both the humanity of those who live and work there and the too often pitiless indifference of its institutions."
Simon will receive the award from Treme and The Wire star Wendell Pierce. In addition to both HBO series, Simon is also known for Homicide: Life on the Street and miniseries Generation Kill. He received a MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" in 2010 his work as an author, screenwriter and producer.
W. Kamau Bell is hosting the WGA's New York party, held at the Edison Ballroom. The West Coast outpost of the WGA will host its awards the same day at the JW Marriott in Los Angeles.
The final episode of Treme airs Sunday, Dec. 22, on HBO.
