David Simon’s "The Wire" has been hailed as one of the finest television shows ever released, a gripping look at big-city dysfunction. His upcoming "Treme," for HBO, takes a similar look at urban decay, but with post-Katrina New Orleans filling in for drug-addled Baltimore. The series, starting in April, stars John Goodman, Steve Zahn and Melissa Leo, as well as "Wire" regulars Wendell Pierece and Clarke Peters.
