Tavis Smiley - April 5, 2010

Tavis talks with the new House Ways and Means chair, Rep. Sandy Lewis, and TV producer David Simon about his new HBO series, Treme.

Known for his realistic dialogue, David Simon is a Baltimore-based writer and TV producer, who began his journalism career as a crime reporter for The Baltimore Sun. He found a new calling in TV after taking a leave to write the book that would became the basis for NBC's Homicide: Life on the Street. Simon went on to co-write and produce HBO's Emmy-winning The Corner and create and exec-produce The Wire. His newest project is HBO's Treme, set in post-Katrina New Orleans. He also continues to freelance for various publications.
