After just one episode, HBO gives second season order to “Treme”

Treme
HBO is jazzed about “Treme,” giving the New Orleans-set drama a second season pickup.

Given the strong critical acclaim, a “Treme” renewal was likely — but came fast, before final ratings had even come out for the show’s debut.

“Treme” will return to New Orleans to resume production there this fall.

“I can’t think of another show that is more emblematic of what we aspire to be as a network than Treme,” said HBO programming prexy Michael Lombardo. “In the tradition of ‘The Wire,’ David Simon and Eric Overmeyer have embarked on an exploration of the soul of one of the world’s most unique cities through the lives of an exquisitely crafted cast of characters. We are thrilled that the press has recognized the profound artistry and intelligence of this show and are eager to see where David and Eric take us in a second season.”

“Treme” follows New Orleans musicians and characters as they rebuild their lives in the months after devastating Hurricane Katrina.

David Simon and Eric Overmyer created the show and exec produce with Nina K. Noble and Carolyn Strauss. The late David Mills was a co-exec producer.

“Treme” stars Wendell Pierce, Steve Zahn, Clarke Peters, Khandi Alexander, Melissa Leo, Kim Dickens, Rob Brown, Lucia Micarelli and John Goodman.
