David Simon’s Treme Gets a New Trailer


Everyone is eagerly awaiting the April 11th premiere of HBO’s new David Simon drama, Treme. So what’s up with the toe-taps, vegetable chops (and anything involving Creole food), colorful parades, and trumpets on display like trophies in this new teaser? We get it already. Anyone who was a fan of The Wire knows that Simon doesn’t do cliches — so should we believe that he’s just trying to lull viewers into a false sense of security before he brings down the post-Katrina hammer? Check out the preview after the jump, and let us know what you think.
