Show of the week: Treme

This new drama by the creators of The Wire takes place in New Orleans three months after Hurricane Katrina.

Pulsing with great music and a gritty atmosphere, this drama from the creators of The Wire opens with a raucous New Orleans parade that takes place three months after Hurricane Katrina. It’s a bravura introduction to a tapestry of colorful characters—hustling musicians, a struggling restaurateur, an iconoclastic DJ, an indomitable Mardi Gras chief—who are rebuilding their lives. The superb ensemble includes The Wire’s Wendell Pierce and Clarke Peters, Homicide’s Melissa Leo, John Goodman, and Steve Zahn. But the real star is the city itself. Sunday, April 11, at 10 p.m., HBO
