From David Simon, creator of one of the greatest shows ever made, The Wire and Generation Kill, comes a new series called Treme. The teaser trailer for this show recently popped up online, and it's an incredibly effective promo. It doesn't show much or give anything away, but it sets up exactly what the feel and style of this show is going to be like, and I totally dig it.
Treme is about a group of musicians and other folks living in the Treme neighborhood of post-Katrina New Orleans. The Wire’s Wendell Pierce, a New Orleans native, will play an accomplished jazz trombonist, and Clark Peters will portray the leader of a Mardi Gras Indian tribe. The rest of the cast includes Steve Zahn, John Goodman, and Melissa Leo.
The series is set to air in April on HBO. Chweck out the teaser promo below and let us know what you think!
