Treme Episode 1: "Do You Know What It Means" (Series Premiere - April 11 - 80 minutes)

Down-but-not-out trombonist Antoine Batiste performs in the first brass-band parade, or "second line," in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. The gig brings him face-to-face with his ex, LaDonna, who runs a local bar when she's not in Baton Rouge with her kids and new husband. After attending the parade, radio deejay Davis McAlary blows a gasket at his station and at a record store, then gets thrown out of the restaurant run by his sometimes-squeeze, Janette Desautel. Meanwhile, Albert Lambreaux returns to the ruins of his home and the bar where he practiced, determined to clean up despite the skepticism of his son Delmond, a touring trumpet player, and daughter Davina. While civil-rights attorney Toni Bernette tries to track down LaDonna's missing brother Daymo, her cantankerous husband, English professor Creighton Bernette, rails against the forces that sold New Orleans down the river in the wake of the storm. (Written by David Simon and Eric Overmyer; directed by Agnieszka Holland)
