Earlier today the magnificent trailer for HBO’s Treme graced us all, and now they’ve followed up with a new 1 minute teaser for Terrence Winter and Martin Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire. The beauty of this is that it brought to my attention the first 1 minute teaser for Boardwalk Empire, embedded along with the newer one below.
This is an HBO series that has some of the best writers and directors of the Sopranos regime, moving over to tackle prohibition era gangsters, guided by the hand of Marty Scorsese. What the fuck else would I possibly need to tell you?
Boardwalk Empire is an upcoming American television series from premium cable network HBO, set in Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition era. The show is adapted from Nelson Johnson’s book, Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Emmy award-winning screenwriter and producer Terence Winter of The Sopranos.
The pilot episode was directed by Martin Scorsese and he is expected to continue to be creatively involved in the ongoing production. On September 1, 2009, HBO picked up the series for an additional 11 episodes, making the first season 12 episodes long, including the pilot. HBO has stated that the series will debut in the fall of 2010.
