The fabulously talented Steve Buscemi stars as Enouch "Nucky" Thompson, the undisputed ruler or Atlantic City.
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.
Don't be confused, this new series has absolutely no similarity to the award winning Sopranos.
The pilot episode was directed by Martin Scorsese and he is expected to continue to be creatively involved in the ongoing production. The executive producers include Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese and Mark Wahlberg. Lawrence Konner is also attached to the series as the co-executive producer.
