HBO: Yes to ‘Treme,’ ‘In Treatment’ On the Bubble

Jun 8, 2009  •  Post A Comment

HBO will begin shooting 10 episodes of its post-Katrina drama “Treme,” from “The Wire” creator David Simon, in New Orleans in the fall, but the pay cable network is still deciding whether to bring back “In Treatment” for a third season, reports Broadcasting & Cable.

The future of the half-hour, which stars Gabriel Byrne as a therapist, will be under discussion this week. One factor is likely to be higher production costs for a third season, now that the program has used up all the storylines from the original Israeli series on which it is based.

A new Chicago criminal court-based drama from Tom Fontana and James Yoshimura, originally being developed as a miniseries, is also under consideration for series status.
