Today in "Treme," part 2

Posted By on Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 10:53 PM

First, The New York Times Sunday Magazine has posted this weekend's upcoming feature on the show -- it's a long read.

Second: HBO has released a second trailer, which is a bit more jaunty and conventional than the first trailer (this one is set to "Do Whatcha Wanna" by the Rebirth Brass Band), and seems designed to appeal to what outsiders "know" about New Orleans: the food, the music, etc. etc. It also has extended scenes with John Goodman playing a Professor Ashley Morris-ish character, and glimpses of Coco Robicheaux and Dr. John, as well as Kermit Ruffins smoking weed outside Vaughan's ... so you know it's totally fictional.
