Wendell Pierce on the ‘bone on ‘Treme’

If you’re a David Simon fan still fuming that the last season of The Wire only ran ten episodes, well…

HBO announced earlier this fall that it was renewing Simon and Eric Overmyer’s New Orleans-set drama Treme for a fourth, final, “abbreviated” season. It was announced Friday, on the show’s Facebook page, that that season will consist of just five episodes. Production gets underway next month.

The show, currently about halfway through airing its ten-episode third season, has never been particularly highly rated or as critically acclaimed as The Wire, but I’ve always been a fan. According to Alan Sepinwall’s blog, HBO furnished the production with a certain amount of funding for a last season, and five episodes was what it could afford.
