The fourth and final season of HBO’s drama series Treme will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday April 9th at 11pm, it has been announced.
Created by David Simon, Treme explores a unique American culture rebuilding after historic devastation, chronicling the life of New Orleans residents in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The drama series stars Wendell Pierce, Khandi Alexander, Clarke Peters, Rob Brown,Steve Zahn, Kim Dickens, Melissa Leo, Michiel Huisman, Lucia Micarelli, Jon Seda, David Morse and India Ennenga.
The show’s fourth season is set between November 2008 and Mardi Gras 2009, 38 months after Hurricane Katrina. Barack Obama has just been elected to the White House, giving this battered, majority-black city reason for optimism. Yet for every entrenched resident who hopes to improve his or her lot – or just return to a sense of pre-Katrina normalcy – others are intent on capitalizing on the city’s vulnerability and suffocating its culture. Stella alum Kenny Doughty has joined the cast as DS Aiden Healy, who replaces the new promoted Joe Ashworth.
