HBO Sets Premiere Date for Treme
HBO is heading back to New Orleans with the Season 2 premiere of Treme on Sunday, April 24.
Treme chronicles New Orleans three months after Hurricane Katrina as its citizens struggle to put their lives, and their city, back together. Among those citizens are a part-time DJ and jazz aficionado (Steve Zahn), a bar owner torn between staying in New Orleans or settling in Baton Rouge (Khandi Alexander) and trombonist Antoine Battiste (Wendell Pierce).
Treme renewed for second season
Joining the cast of the 11-episode second season is The Pacific's Jon Seda, who will play a politically connected developer and venture capitalist from Dallas. He becomes involved in the renewal efforts in post-Katrina New Orleans.
Treme, which will air 10/9c, was co-created by The Wire alums Eric Overmeyer and David Simon.
