'Treme' Season 3, Ep. 2: A Deep Specificity of Culture

30 September 2012 11:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Decades ago, I'd heard that Eric Overmeyer and the wonderful actress Ellen McElduff had begun living part-time in her native Louisiana. This is obviously well before Katrina, but even then, New Orleans was in need of support. Cajun culture was having its brief moment in the sun, but the city and state were already in severe economic distress. The kind of contemporary work Eric and Ellen were doing in the theatre was, to put it mildly, absent. (I haven't seen either in years, but I've long been an admirer of both of their work and have had passing acquaintance with them.) Overmeyer -- who gets this season's only sole credit on this week's episode of "Treme" -- is the co-creator of the series but has understandably been treated as the secondary figure in the partnership with David Simon. His contribution, however, should not be underestimated. Overmeyer writes about New Orleans »
