Amid the ruins of an American city, ordinary people – musicians, chefs, residents – find themselves clinging to a unique culture and wondering if their city still has a future. From the creators of The Wire comes a new, acclaimed series about adversity and the human spirit, set in New Orleans, in the aftermath of the greatest man-made disaster in American history. Welcome to Treme.
From the creators of The Wire comes the second season of the acclaimed series about adversity and the human spirit, set in New Orleans, in the aftermath of the greatest man-made disaster in American history.
Over a year has passed since Katrina, but residents are finding it harder than ever to rebuild their lives, much less hold on to their special cultural identity. Some have left to become expatriates in places like New York. Others have been forced to sell their homes to outside developers. Crime and drug use are up, and corruption and graft has dried up money intended for recovery. So why bother to stay? Because it’s New Orleans, and New Orleans must go on.
New Orleans, 25 months later. Crime and corruption are up, culture is being trampled, and the people who matter – the workers, families and dreamers who still live here – have had enough. HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleans characters who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. The series’ focus is still on ordinary people, but they no longer accept their lack of influence on the institutions that have controlled the city.
New Orleans, 38 months after. Barack Obama has just been elected to the White House, giving entrenched residents of this still-battered city reason for optimism. Yet for every Batiste, Lambreaux, McAlary and Desautel who hopes to improve his or her lot – or just return to a sense of pre-Katrina normalcy – others are intent on capitalizing on the city’s vulnerability and suffocating its culture. HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleanians who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. In the series’ final five episodes, which take place from November 2008 through Mardi Gras 2009, the promise of economic and cultural recovery – heightened by a historic presidential election – is tempered by sobering economics, continued police corruption, and the ongoing specter of violence and crime. Still, the connection Treme’s protagonists have with their city keeps them committed to its future – and to building their own legacy in this most iconic of American cities.
