It’s officialâ€”HBO is king. As if “The Wire,” “True Blood” and the new “How To Make it In America” weren’t enough to put virtual holds on our social calendars, David Simon (“The Wire,” “Generation Kill”) and Eric Overmyer (“Law & Order”) have teamed up with the network to give us “Treme” – set to debut April 11th. According to the release:
The one-hour drama series TREME will launch its ten-episode first season on HBO in April, it was announced today by Sue Naegle, president, HBO Entertainment.Â From David Simon (â€œThe Wire,â€ â€œGeneration Kill,â€ â€œThe Cornerâ€) and Eric Overmyer (â€œHomicide,â€ â€œThe Wireâ€), the show follows musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanians as they try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane and levee failure that caused the near-death of an American city.
Sounds great. John Goodman and Clarke Peters (aka Lester Freeman from “The Wire”) are part of the cast so we are definitely watching. I’m already feeling the theme musicâ€”peep the trailers after the jump:
ps. is that our guy from Finding Forrester? Heart.
Shouldn’t HBO do a full mixtape of all their series’s theme songs? Hmmmmm
