The new HBO series the Treme is set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. For those that lived it, it is more than a TV show, it is real life. Nothing brings “real life” home more than death. I was background (an extra) in a Cafe Du Monde scene for the new HBO series Treme’ yesterday. So I was there when co-producer David Mills collapsed during filming. He was taken away by ambulance but we were not really sure what had happened. I just found out he passed away as the result of a brain aneurysm. David Mills was an Emmy-award-winning writer for HBO’s The Wire and co-executive producer of the upcoming drama Treme, set in New Orleans. He was 48 years old. Rest in peace David.
