Disguised as a “set tour,” this is really just a rundown of what we can expect next year.
Where the roaring 1920s lights of a F. Scott Fitzgerald novel meet with the violent crime sagas of a Scorsese classic, this what you can find in the fast-paced and explosive new gangster series “Boardwalk Empire.”
On the eve of 1920 with his pockets full of cash and liquor in a high demand due to prohibition, Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson (played with tough talk and weak posture by Steve Buscemi) is at the top of his game as the Treasurer over the swinging and swindling lights of Atlantic City. Thompson has everything in place to create Atlantic City as the speakeasy capital of the world but as high stakes prove he has a lot more coming this way as the infamous decade will come of age in gangster warfare, political upheaval, and a crash and burn economy.

HBO's Martin Scorsese-produced, Terence Winter-created Steve Buscemi as a bad ass gangsta Prohibition drama series will debut Sunday, September 19 at 9PM. Buscemi plays "the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City and town Treasurer, Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, who is described as “a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role." Check out the trailer here. I've already set a series recording on my DVR.
We've seen the teaser and the first trailer for HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," and now there's a new trailer that is by far the most gangsta. The show, created by "The Soprano's" writer Terence Winter and exec produced by Martin Scorsese, who also directed the pilot, looks like "The Soprano's" but with fedoras, speakeasies, and hot lather barbershop shaves. Steve Buscemi is the new Tony Soprano, so we're trading in a weight problem for a dental one, but he appears just as menacing and short-tempered as the wheezing Mafia boss. He plays "the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City and town Treasurer, Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, who is described as “a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role." Get ready for "Boardwalk Empire" to come at you like gangbusters this fall on HBO. And for God's sake, hide your barrels of bathtub gin. I recommend the bathtub. Check out the new trailer after the jump.
