First Treme Promo is Basically The Gospel

  • 2comments

Of the many good-looking midseason shows coming out over the next four months, one the highlights is HBO's Treme, by The Wire creator and TV genius David Simon (yeah, I'm biased).

Set in New Orleans, Treme (pronounced tre-MAY and named after a neighborhood in the Big Easy) takes a look at the city's vibrant music scene and how it has survived since Hurricane Katrina. It stars Clark Peters, Wendell Pierce, Steve Zahn, and the recently announced John Goodman, and listening to the gospel piece that accompanies the very tease-y trailer gives me goosebumps. I. Can't. Wait.

Okay, so it didn't really show us anything, but it still got me pumped. For actual footage of the show, head to the 1:50 mark of the following HBO promo, which features a few images of what to expect.
