Report: HBO picks up David Simon's new show


Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that HBO has ordered the first ten episodes of David Simon's Treme, about life in post-Katrina New Orleans. It will center on the jazz music scene, but it's probably safe to guess that Simon and co. will take a look at the various ways in which numerous agencies have let the city down. Treme stars Steve Zahn, Melissa Leo, Khandi Alexander, Kim Dickens, and, from Simon's previous show, Clarke "Lester Freamon" Peters and Wendell "Bunk Moreland" Pierce, the latter of whom is pictured above.
