New Orleans, 38 months after Hurricane Katrina: Barack Obama has just been elected to the White House, giving this battered, majority-black city reason for optimism. Yet for every entrenched resident who hopes to improve his or her lot - or just return to a sense of pre-Katrina normalcy - others are intent on capitalizing on the city's vulnerability and suffocating its culture. Created by David Simon and Eric Overmyer, the Peabody Award-winning drama series TREME returned for its five-episode conclusion Sunday, December 1st. Beginning in Nov. 2008 and culminating at Mardi Gras 2009, the new season revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and other familiar New Orleanians who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city.
