Will You Watch?: HBO's "Treme"



If you don't have HBO, this might be the week you'll want to cozy up to the cable man or something. HBO debuts its new show Treme this weekend and if pedigree means anything, this will be a hot one. Treme is the brainchild of The Wire's David Simon and Eric Overmyer.  (Sadly, David Mills, the show's writer and co-executive producer --who also hails from The Wire's team-- passed away last week.)

The series focuses on the music community in post-Katrina New Orleans. Critics say the show may just represent the city like no other film/series has. And, it should be noted while Katrina's aftermath is central to the series, this isn't a crime drama or a "woe is me" type show.


Treme premieres April 11th at 10 pm (ET) on HBO.

So, will you watch?

I'm looking forward to this one. I did a little reading on the background, and it seems to me that the show will be both entertaining AND political.

I was a fan of The Wire, it was one of the better shows on television for a long time. I also lived in the New Orleans metropolitan area for nine years........absolutely love the place.

I will watch Treme, I've been looking forward to this series.
