Set in the 1920s in the early days of Prohibition, Emmy(R)-nominated, Golden Globe-winning series Boardwalk Empire chronicles the life and times of “Nucky” Thompson, the undisputed leader of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.
From HBO’s press release, August 2014… Atlantic City, 1931: As the country struggles to cope with the Great Depression and the end of Prohibition looms, Nucky Thompson looks to legitimize himself through alliances with liquor producers, while rivals Lucky Luciano and Meyer Lansky seek to consolidate their power in the wake of Arnold Rothstein’s death and eliminate all competition – by any means necessary. The Emmy(R)-winning HBO drama series BOARDWALK EMPIRE returns for its eight-episode, fifth and final season SUNDAY, SEPT. 7 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. From Terence Winter, Emmy(R)-winning writer of “The Sopranos,” and Academy Award(R)-winning director Martin Scorsese, BOARDWALK EMPIRE is set in the Prohibition era and chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, the leader of Atlantic City. The first four seasons took place during the 1920s. In the final season, which takes place in the depths of the Depression in 1931, Nucky recalls his Atlantic City roots and plots a post-Prohibition future.
