Steve Zahn and Kim Dickens are in negotiations to star in Treme, a drama pilot for HBO. Treme is a neighborhood in New Orleans, and the series will take place in the post-Katrina landscape as local citizens work diligently to rebuild their lives in the wake of the national disaster. The series will be told from the viewpoint of local musicians.
Zahn will play Davis Rogan, a street dancer/local radio DJ/band member who has anger issues and is proud of his New Orleans heritage. Zahn is a singer and guitarist off-screen. Dickens will play a chef who has opened her own restaurant and is in the midst of an on-again, off-again relationships with Zahn's character. This is the first time Zahn, known for his comedic big screen roles, has agreed to do a series, despite the fact that producers have tried to lure him to the small screen for years.
