Tuning into Tremé
Tuning into Tremé with Larry Blumenfeld: The HBO fiction and the New Orleans Reality
Part 4: The “New” New Orleans with special guest, Tremé producer Eric Overmyer
For this final session of “Tuning into Treme,” our special guest will be Eric Overmyer, Co-Creator and Executive Producer of the HBO series.
These 90-minute conversations are led by writer Larry Blumenfeld, who covers jazz regularly for The Wall Street Journal, writes the “Blu Notes” blog, and who has written extensively about New Orleans since the flood. This Tuesday, he and Overmyer will preview excerpts from upcoming episodes, reflect on the fictional HBO show’s four-year arc and discuss its relationship to the issues surrounding jazz culture and real life in New Orleans.
