Treme
Overview Episodes

Set in post-Katrina New Orleans, this hourlong drama series, from ``The Wire'' executive producers David Simon and Eric Overmyer, follows the lives of ordinary residents as they struggle with the aftereffects of the 2005 hurricane. Says star and New Orleans native Wendell Pierce, ``The only things people had to hang on to were the rich traditions we knew that survived the test of time before: our music, food and family, family that included anyone who decided to accept the challenge to return.'' The large ensemble cast is supported by notable real-life New Orleanians, including many of its famous musicians.
