I realise most Wire fans will know about this already, but it's very close now, and yet I could find no thread. |

Series is scheduled to première April 11, 2010, on HBO. The first season will consist of 10 episodes, including an 80-minute pilot episode. Trailers look mighty fine:
#1 teaser - it's like L4D2 but with instruments, not zombies!
#2 Ring Shout this trailer got soul
#3 Do you wanna? **awesome** - plus, play "spot the Wire actors"
It was originally Tremé but apparently market research says Americans can't handle accents (allegedly). It's still pronounced Trem-ay though.
Set in the autumn of 2005, Treme is an upcoming American drama television series created by David Simon and Eric Overmyer (Homicide: Life on the Street ). The series takes place three months after Hurricane Katrina where the residents of New Orleans, including musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanians try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture.
Treme (historically sometimes called Tremé or Faubourg Tremé or Tremé/Lafitte when including the Lafitte Projects) is a neighborhood of the city of New Orleans. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, and early in the city's history was the main neighborhood of free people of color. It remains an important center of the city's African-American and Créole culture, especially the modern brass band tradition. Parts of the Tremé neighborhood (particularly the area lakeside of Claiborne Avenue) have a crime problem. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Tremé neighborhood received minor to moderate flooding. Fortunately in the portion of the neighborhood in from I-10, the water was generally not high enough to damage many of the old raised homes.
I'm really looking forward to this.

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
