HBO is offering up another look at its new Boarkwalk Empire series set to debut this September. This trailer will air prior to the True Blood Season 3 premiere this evening where millions of “blood” thirsty viewers will have their eyeballs fixed.
Why should you be interested in Boardwalk Empire? For starters, it’s written by ‘Sopranos’ scribe Terence Winter. And some guy named Martin Scorsese is behind the camera.
Boardwalk Empire is set in Atlantic City during the era of prohibition and stars Steve Buscemi as the city’s ruler. Judging by the characters acting colorfully and intensity this trailer delivers, Boardwalk Empire has a legitimate shot at luring back the Sopranos and Deadwood faithful waiting for a worthy replacement.
