SideReel's Fall TV Preview continues with HBO's upcoming fall drama, Boardwalk Empire, starring Steve Buscemi in a much-anticipated show that prospective fans everywhere have been calling the next Sopranos. See what the series is about and why it's worth watching in the season ahead!
Airs: This fall on HBO
Notable Stars: Steve Buscemi, Michael Coley, Michael Pitt
Synopsis: Based on Nelson Johnson's book Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City, this HBO drama tells the legendary tale of the gambling mecca's origins. The series follows the life and times of Nucky Thompson, the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.
Why Watch? If a killer collabo like The Sopranos' writer Terence Winter and director Martin Scorcese doesn't already make you want to pee your pants with excitement, maybe it's not for you! But even if the idea of a prohibition era drama intrigues you just a bit, it might be worth checking out -- after all, once True Blood concludes in September, you may be craving another HBO fix!
