I’m so excited about the news from TV Squad that HBO has picked up David Simon’s Treme. HBO has greenlit nine episodes of the drama starring Wire alums, Clarke Peters and Wendell Pierce, as well as Melissa Leo from Homicide. The show is about New Orleans musicians, post Hurrican Katrina. Can’t wait to hear the soundtrack that will go with the series.

David Simon begins filming…

David Simon has begun filming his latest, Treme, which takes place in New Orleans following Katrina. It won’t be picked up until HBO sees the pilot so keep your fingers crossed.┬áHe has lined up a stellar group of writers and cast for this project and I am really excited to see the stories they tell.

On a related note, if you want to listen to a masterpiece of music that truly sums up the emotions in New Orleans following the hurricane, buy Terence Blanchard’s, A Tale of God’s Will(A Requiem for Katrina). I can’t listen to “Funeral Dirge” without thinking back to the haunting images from Spike Lee’s, When the Levees Broke.
