Treme Season 1 is released on DVD and Blu-ray next Monday, 30th May (pre-order your copy here) and HBO Home Entertainment have give us this exclusive clip from the TV show. Treme comes from David Simon, the man responsible for shows like The Wire and Generation Kill and stars Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Life Support), Clarke Peters (The Wire, Damages, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn), Academy Award® nominee Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Homicide and HBO’s forthcoming Mildred Pierce) and Khandi Alexander (award-winning performances in David Simon’s The Corner and CSI: Miami). Also starring are John Goodman (The Big Lebowski, The West Wing) and Steve Zahn (Sunshine Cleaning, Happy Texas) in his first television series.

The sprawling ten-part series follows musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanians as they try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture three months after the greatest calamity to ever befall the Southern States. The very first scene hit with the reality of a disaster that impacts on every possible level, physically, emotionally and spiritually. As the series unfolds we experience the stoicism and camaraderie that surfaces in the wake of travesty.

From the dystopian streets of Baltimore’s The Wire, to the rich tapestry of a culturally unique New Orleans, David Simon has once again built a city.
