It's pretty rare these days that I get excited about a new television series. Sure, I'm up for tonight's premiere of The Pacific, but that's not the show I'm most heavily anticipating in 2010. The show I'm most stoked about is Treme.
I stand by my claim that The Wire is The Greatest Show On Television, Ever™. I've opined openly on the subject at http://www.torontomike.com/the_wire/. Treme is from the makers of The Wire, and here's the description from Wikipedia.
Treme is an upcoming American drama television series created by David Simon and Eric Overmyer. The series takes place three months after Hurricane Katrina where the residents of New Orleans, including musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanian try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane. The series is scheduled to premiere April 11, 2010, on HBO. The first season will consist of 10 episodes, including an 80-minute pilot episode.
Note: I originally embedded the trailer below, but it was inexplicably pulled from YouTube. Instead, here's the less exciting teaser.
Welcome back, Bunk! I'll be watching on HBO Canada... there's no way I'd miss this.
