HBO Premieres Trailer For David Simon's 'Treme'

This got us proselytizers of The Wire real excited yesterday afternoon at the office:

Yes, that's Clarke Peters and a trombone-playing Wendell Pierce (Lester and Bunk of The Wire, respectively). And John Goodman. And a cameo from Elvis Costello and Allen Toussaint.

For those who haven't heard, Treme is the story of post-Katrina New Orleans, centered around a neighborhood famous for housing musicians. Like that other David Simon HBO show we rave about, it'll likely aim to make a grand statement about American urban life, with incredible authenticity to local color. We can't wait.
