Last night, we went to the Clinton School of Public Service to hear from Eric Overmyer, co-creator of HBO’s post-Katrina New Orleans drama “Treme.” While he couldn’t be too specific, Overmyer did drop some hints about the focus of the show’s second season, scheduled to begin shooting this fall in the Big Easy.

You can read my full post on Overmyer’s talk on’s Play Blog.

Overmyer, a playwright and TV writer who’s worked on shows including NBC’s “St. Elsewhere” and “Homicide: Life on the Street,” had a big hand in another HBO show by David Simon, “The Wire,” where he worked as a writer and consulting producer during the show’s lauded fourth season, which focused on the troubled Baltimore school system.
