Treme: The Complete Third Season - Preview

Preview by Jack Foley

FROM the award-winning writers of The Wire, HBO Home Entertainment announces the September 30, 2013 DVD and Blu-ray release of the complete third season of the two-time Emmy® and Grammy® Awards nominee Treme, following its broadcast on Sky Atlantic.

Season three begins 25 months after Hurricane Katrina. Crime and corruption are up, culture is being trampled, and the people who matter – the workers, families and dreamers who live here – have had enough.

HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleans characters who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. The series’ focus is still on ordinary people, but they no longer accept their lack of influence on the institutions that have controlled the city.

Season 3 sees the return of the outstanding ensemble who have previously worked with David Simon; Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Horrible Bosses), Clarke Peters (The Wire, Damages), Academy Award® nominee Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Homicide, Mildred Pierce) and Khandi Alexander (award-winning performances in David Simon’s The Corner and CSI: Miami).

Steve Zahn (Sunshine Cleaning, Diary of a Wimpy Kid) also stars in his first television series. Producers David Simon (The Wire, Generation Kill) and Eric Overmyer (Law & Order, Homicide: Life on the Street) are also critically celebrated for creating some of the most insightful and interesting dramas on TV.

Treme: The Complete Third Season is out on DVD and Blu-ray from September 30, 2013.
