Treme Season 3: The Indomitable Spirit of New Orleans

The poster for the third season of Treme sent a definite message. With all 12 main characters defiantly posing in front of the camera, all that needed to be said was uttered in the picture's tagline "Is that all you got?". After two seasons of trying to piece together some semblance of a normal life out of the rubble that Katrina left in her wake, the characters of Treme have had enough and now it's time to take matters into their own hands.

HBO has released a video that expands upon the message of independence and frustration that the poster initiated, allowing those behind the scenes to set the framework for the third season. And in that third season, premiering next month, we'll be seeing a much more proactive group of characters, having grown tired of the stalled city bureaucracy that has made recovery that much slower. Rather than leave it in the hands of others, Janette, LaDonna, Annie, and all the rest will be putting their collective nose to the grindstone and making things happen, bureaucracy be damned. Treme has been excellent at showing the type of devastation and delayed recovery that resulted from Katrina, so now it has to chance to tell a slightly more upbeat story - life in New Orleans might be far from perfect, but the fact that progress like we're about to see this season can be made is a testament to the indomitable spirit of that vibrant city down south.
