‘Boardwalk Empire’ Trailer Highlights Jersey’s Second Most Violent Shore

Tuesday, March 16 by

HBO refuses to falter in its attempts to overtake our Sunday nights. Yesterday we showed you the new trailer for David Simon‘s "Treme" and today we have a longer look at the Terrence Winter and Martin Scorsese period drama "Boardwalk Empire." Set in Prohibition-era Atlantic City, it’s an old timey look at gambling and gangsters starring Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson, the real life crime boss who ruled A.C. with an iron fist and distended eyeballs. Think of it as "Deadwood" with running water and Omar from "The Wire."

Have a look at Atlantic City’s glory days before it was claimed by the elderly, after the jump.
