First Look at HBO's 'Treme' via Trailer


Abandoned trombones, saxophones, and tambourines are found in deserted places in New Orleans after the city was struck by hurricane Katrina.

The first trailer of "Treme" a new drama series by HBO has been unleashed, revealing none of the human but music instruments scattered in some places. "Treme" is a post-Katrina-themed drama that chronicles the rebuilding of New Orleans through the eyes of local musicians. The title is derived from a neighborhood in the city.

The men behind the series are the same persons who created the critically-acclaimed "The Wire". David Simon and Eric Overmyer teamed up once again to expose the aftermath of natural disaster in a series that would star Wendell Pierce and Clarke Peters. The former actor would be an accomplished jazz trombonist while the latter would be a Mardi Gras Indian tribe leader.

Back in 2008, Simon said, the series will explore beyond the music scene to encompass political corruption, the public housing controversy, the criminal-justice system, clashes between police and Mardi Gras Indians, and the struggle to regain the tourism industry after the storm. "It's basically a post-Katrina history of the city. It will be rooted in events that everybody knows," Simon said.

Others in the cast ensemble are Khandi Alexander, Kim Dickens, Melissa Leo, Rob Brown and Steve Zahn. "Treme" is scheduled to air after miniseries "The Pacific" wraps up in March. Rumor has it, it would be on April 11.
