New HBO Series Based on Book

Martin Scorcese will direct the pilot of a new 2010 HBO series Boardwalk Empire based on the novel by Nelson Johnson. Aside from Mad Men, I don’t watch series television, but I’m going to have to give this one a try: “The series stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson, a Prohibition-era bootlegger and prominent figure in the Atlantic City of the early 1920s, someone who’s described as “equal parts politician and gangster.” Kelly Macdonald (“No Country for Old Men”), Michael Pitt (“The Village”), Michael Kenneth Williams (“The Wire”), Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”) and Dabney Coleman also star.”

Spread the word!
