About the Show: “Boardwalk Empire,” a period drama set in tumultuous, Prohibition-era Atlantic City, N.J., will premiere Sept. 19. That means the series will be launching just as the broadcast networks are premiering all their new fall shows -- a sign HBO must feel particularly confident in its prospects.
Martin Scorsese serves as executive producer and directed the pilot. The show was created by Terence Winter, a "Sopranos" writer, who recruited much of the crew
The series is based on the book by Nelson Johnson about the corrupt political atmosphere around Atlantic City in the Prohibition era of the 1920s, with Steve Buscemi playing a fictionalized version of real political boss Nucky Johnson (Buscemi's version is called "Nucky Thompson"). Since the series has fictional characters interacting with real ones, Winter felt it was best to fictionalize Nucky to give the character more freedom. Buscemi, taking the lead after a long distinguished career of character roles, called the role "one of the best parts I've ever had in my life, and it's just so exciting for me to go to work and to know that these scripts are so strong and to play a character who is ambitious."
