HBO announced that their new series, Treme, will premiere in April 2010. HBO also announced the renewal of True Blood, Hung and Entourage. Both the Treme and True Blood series are shot in Louisiana.
Treme (by David Simon of The Wire) is about life in New Orleans. Our artist, Kermit Ruffins, acts and performs as himself in the pilot and we expect will be seen and heard throughout the series.
