Trailer is unveiled for David Simon’s ‘Treme’


Below is the first teaser trailer for the upcoming HBO series Treme, created by David Simon of The Wire and set in New Orleans. Simon has said: "I love that city and have been a constant visitor for many years. Even before Katrina, we asked HBO for the opportunity to write a series about the culture of music in New Orleans, centering the story on a working-class black neighborhood. Katrina happened and the story seemed to gain a new import." Treme premieres April 11.
