There was a little disappointment last year because people here in New Orleans wanted the New Orleans version of The Wire. But what's so different about Treme is that it's trying really hard to capture culture, and show the impact culture has on people's lives. Culture is the intersection of people and life itself. It's how we deal with life, love, death, birth, disappointment...
Both the part of Antoine Batiste on "Treme" and the part of Owen Thoreau, Jr., on "Men of a Certain Age" were created with him in mind. He was offered both parts around the same time but had to choose "Treme" since it was about New Orleans, his hometown.
