Treme Trailer: New Orleans, Melissa Leo, Sunbathing Trombones — and More!

This new fast-edited trailer for TremeWire creator David Simon's upcoming HBO series about the rebuilding of post-Katrina New Orleans — doesn't get into any real plot specifics, but gives an aerial view of the cast and setting that should probably make you a tiny bit more excited for the show's premiere on April 11. On the menu for the show's first season, evidently: Khandi Alexander, tambourines, Melissa Leo, Bunk, strippers, John Goodman, soul food, shirtless Steve Zahn, trombones standing majestically in the sun, Elvis Costello, and Lester Freamon in a headdress. Sounds good to us.
