The quintessential A-Z of the HBO show—from Atlantic City, Babette's Supper Club, and Capone, to the Ziegfeld Theatre, where the series held its eagerly anticipated premiere Brimming with fascinating details about the series, this indispensible show companion covers the historical background, how the 1920s was reconstructed, the realities of filming, biographies of key members of the cast and crew, and much more. One of the most anticipated shows in HBO's history, Boardwalk Empire was created by Terence Winter, screenwriter and executive producer of The Sopranos, and Martin Scorsese serves as an executive producer, as well as directing the first episode and establishing the look of the show. With a stellar cast headed by the great Steve Buscemi and including some of the finest character actors in the business, the show has proven to be ever bit as smart, brutal, and thrilling as had been anticipated. Already renewed for a second season, it is set to become one of the defining series of the decade.
