Watch the trailer...I promise you will be at the very least intrigued...
The best part?
John Goodman's last line of the trailer. It may be my feisty protectiveness of New Orleans particularly since Katrina, but..."Hate the food? Hate the music? Hate the city? Then, what the &*^# you doin' down here?"
I am pumped for the premiere on April 11, 2010. I hope everyone tunes in so that we can at least have some lively discussions about the representation of the city and its people, whether it appropriately depicts life post-disaster, and, the most important thing, whether it is just damn "good."
If you are a "Wire" person (I have never watched it, but I am sure it is as amazing as everyone says), then you will likely love Treme since it is produced by the same team. For more fun Treme info, click here.
So, "Do You Wanna?"
P.S. Thus far, there was only one gratuitous fleshy boobie/stripper shot. I know that some of you may ask for more poles and bras, but I thought it was a reasonable nod (you know, New Orleans films, TV shows, songs, etc. cannot resist the poles and boobies) without being over the top.
P.P.S. Julie posted about the filming of Treme on her blog here. You can also check out her celebrity appearance in her post!
