HBO’s Boardwalk Empire Green-Lit For Second Season
All it took was one episode of Boardwalk Empire for HBO head honchos to green-light it for a second season. The new HBO series which premiered last Sunday posits Nucky Thompson at the forefront of the Atlantic City prohibition underworld. Other familiar names within the series include Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, and Arnold Rothstein. All of the characters portrayed are real gangsters from the 1920s, many of whom made their fortunes during the epoch in which alcohol was illegal. The series stars Brooklyn based Steve Buscemi alongside his oft-nude love interest Paz del la Huerta. Offered below is the preview for the second episode. If you haven’t done so already, find a way to peep the first, or get left in the dust real quick.
