Treme isn’t the only New Orleans vehicle on HBO’s radar. Trouble the Water, Carl Deal and Tia Lessin’s Oscar-nominated 2008 documentary about Kimberly and Scott Roberts’ survival during and after Hurricane Katrina, receives its television premiere tonight at 7:30 p.m. (8:30 p.m. EST) on the cable network.

“Even though people will be seeing it in their living rooms, we’re working hard to organize group viewings,” says Deal, “particularly around the opening, so people can not only view the film, but engage in some real meaningful discussion afterward. There’s also an advance version of the DVD that’s available for community groups and schools. … The DVD will be available commercially following [HBO’s] broadcast, probably sometime in the summer.”

The filmmakers have even created Web tools to assist those who have HBO and want to host a party, or who do not have HBO and would like to mooch off a friend’s subscription.
