David Simon's Treme Gets April 11 Premiere Date, Trailer
Writer David Simon wants to make this clear: His new HBO drama, Treme, is not another version of The Wire. (Also, “Treme” doesn’t rhyme with “theme”—the show is named for the musically historic area of New Orleans and is pronounced “truh-MAY.”) The show is scheduled to kick off on April 11, and now has a trailer, which you can watch below. But don’t expect to learn too much about the actual plot or premise. In fact, to quote The Onion’s A.V. Club, where we came across the clip, you should “Check out the Treme trailer to learn nothing about Treme.” Still, it’s a nice-enough looking 47 seconds of footage that gets us excited for the forthcoming series. For more about Simon’s inspiration and vision for the series, read the interview with him from Paste 57.
