Boardwalk Empire TV Show


Boardwalk Empire Cast

Series Description

    

Boardwalk Empire is a 60 minute crime drama series on HBO about the treasurer of Atlantic City, New Jersey named "Nucky" Thompson during the 1920s prohibition era who draws the attention of federal agents due to his connections with both politicians and mobsters. He lives a lifestyle far beyond what his apparent salary should be able to support. While it's fairly obvious that he must be involved in bootleging and/or other illegal activities, his connections make it a nearly impossible task for agents to bring him to justice.

Boardwalk Empire Trivia

The Nucky Thompson character on Boardwalk Empire was inspired by the real life Nucky Johnson who looked more like Tony Soprano on "The Sopranos" than like Steve Buscemi who plays Nucky on Boardwalk Empire. Series creator Terence Winter was a writer on The Sopranos and while he based Nucky on a real life person, he didn't want him to look almost exactly like Tony Soprano. The real life Nucky was also the undisputed boss of the Republican political machine in control of Atlantic City and of Atlantic County.

While Nucky is based on a real life person, many of the people surrounding him on the show are totally fictional. Lots of the details about Nucky's life are also fiction used for dramatic effect. The writers did strive however to keep the actions of the real life mobsters like Al Capone, Lucky Luciano and others as true to their real life actions as possible.

Gretchen Mol (Gillian Darmody) plays the mother of Michael Pitt's character (James "Jimmy" Darmody) on Boardwalk Empire. On the show she is said to have given birth to her son at the young age of only 13-years-old! In real life though, Gretchen is only nine years older than Michael.

Executive producer and pilot director Martin Scorsesehe was so insistent that the set depicting 1920s Atlantic City be accurate, he even demanded that the wooden planks on the boardwalk be reproduced to the same exact width as the ones of the 1920s. The set itself is located in Brooklyn, New York.
