Treme' teaser is making some guy pee his pants

Remember when you couldn't go anywhere without some guy telling you that The Wire was the greatest show in the history of television? Today, that guy peed his pants while watching the forty seven second trailer for David Simon and company's new show Treme, about the music scene of a small neighborhood in New Orleans. The Times-Picayune has reported that long time Wire writer and novelist George Pelecanos will be on board with Simon, as well as former newspaper reporter David Mills. Wendell Pierce, Clarke Peters (of the Wire), Steve Zahn, and Kim Dickens (of Deadwood) have been reported to be among the cast. You'll learn none of this from the trailer, which is hair raising and titilating without saying much of anything.
