    A simple — yet very effective — teaser for David Simon’s (The Wire, Generation Kill) new HBO series Treme has just popped online. Even at a mere fourty-seven seconds, it’s already giving me goosebumps. Hunter has covered some statements from Simon about the series last month. Here’s a primer: Treme is about a group of musicians and other folks living in the Treme neighborhood of post-Katrina New Orleans. The Wire’s Wendell Pierce, a New Orleans native, will play an accomplished jazz trombonist, and Clark Peters will portray the leader of a Mardi Gras Indian tribe. The rest of the cast includes Steve Zahn, John Goodman, and Melissa Leo.

    The series is set to premiere sometime in April on HBO. Check out the teaser after the break.

    Bunk (Wendell Pierce) was one of my favorite characters on The Wire and it nice to see him get a lead role.

    The show seems to be interesting.

    It's always cracked me up how HBO reuses actors. Half the cast of The Wire had parts in Oz. :laugh2:

    Couple of other series I have seen slated for some of the pay channels.

    Spartacus.
    Also seen another one called Empire I think, from the writers of the Sopranos but this is set during the prohibition period.

    If its HBO, you have to at least check it out. The trailer's beautiful.

    I can't wait for the Pacific. Only a couple more months.

    Pacific has a lot to live up to. Hopefully it can equal BofB.
