First Trailer for Abbreviated Fourth and Final Season of TREME; Premiere Set for December 1st

A short teaser trailer for HBO drama  Treme  has let us know the show will be back for a mere five episodes to wrap up its post-Katrina story of New Orleans.  The  David Simon -penned drama will returnDecember 1st at 9 p.m. (instead of in September, as was originally discussed).  Though  Treme  has never had the kind of audience that HBO’s other dramas have enjoyed (not by a long shot), it’s a testament to the premium network’s respect for Simon (who also brought them  The Wire  and  Generation Kill ) that he has been given time to close out the story in a satisfying way.  Hit the jump for the promo.

'Treme' cookbook author Lolis Eric Elie talks Season 4 cutbacks

"Treme's" shortened fourth and final season is due to premiere on HBO on Dec. 1, but fortunately fans of the series can have a taste of the show while they wait for the final five episodes to air. A cookbook called "Treme: Stories and Recipes from the Heart of New Orleans," which was written by "Treme" story editor Lolis Eric Elie, was released by Chronicle Books on July 24. Zap2it spoke with Elie about the cookbook, which not only gives detailed recipes from the heart of New Orleans but also spotlights the people who live there. Like "Treme," the goal of the cookbook was to share a slice of life from post-Katrina New Orleans. "The first thing I did was go back and look at all the times we saw food on screen and we talked about it on screen and tried to figure out which of those recipes to use. Much of what we... //

Treme 3.07 Preview: Mardi Gras in Washington D.C.?

It's Carnival time on Treme and this year, the festivities find New Orleans in much better shape that previous years. Financially, spiritually - the foundation of NOLA has grown in strength and Mardi Gras will be more of a culmination of that progress and provide the residents with a chance to celebrate how far they've come. In prior years, Carnival had been more of an escape, a way to put thoughts of homelessness, crumbling infrastructure, delayed governmental aid, and a seemingly hopeless future to rest for a time. New Orleans might be not where its residents would like it to be, but it's getting there and now's the time to reward themselves for making it to this point. On tonight's episode of Treme , the Carnival spirit isn't limited to only New Orleans, as Nelson and Annie are both in Washington D.C. for a Mardi Gras Ball. Nelson is, of course, attempting to charm any and everyone with a little authority in hopes of getting a federal position, while Annie has been invited to sit in with the Neville Brothers and play the Ball. Both have seen their careers grow during the third season of Treme and a trip out of the NOLA bubble might be the best thing for them to continue expanding their reach. Annie, in particular, has been a touring machine this season and being able to play with the Neville Brothers, along with getting her record deal and a new manager, shows that the dedication she has for her craft is paying off. Elsewhere on Treme , Toni meets up with Judge Gatling at Galatoire's, Janette looks to Emeril Lagasse for advice ahead of the opening, and Sonny works on rebuilding his relationships with Linh and Tran after falling off the wagon of sobriety.

Treme 3.06 Sneak Peek: Janette Gets a Turn in the Spotlight

Earlier this season on Treme , Janette had an offer that seemed too good to be true. A man who regularly ate at the restaurant she worked at in New York wanted to make the chef the centerpiece of a restaurant he was starting down in New Orleans. Homesick and unfulfilled creatively, Janette was eager to get started, once she made the trip back home to get a look at the space and get an idea of the working relationship that she'd have with the restaurateur. It would be a chance to work with Jacques again, to get in on the ground floor of an economically growing NOLA, to have control of a kitchen and be able to express herself in a way that she hadn't been able to in a long while.
