Martin Scorsese is executive producing. An Emmy-award winning Sopranos writer is penning the script. Veteran actor Steve Buscemi is playing the lead. With a pedigree like that, you've got to check out HBO's new crime drama, Boardwalk Empire (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET). At least once.
Sure, there will be some violence. After all, it's about a corrupt, 1920s-era political figure, Nucky Thompson -- who runs the Atlantic City casinos and attractions through threats, back-room deals and alliances with gangsters. Young versions of Al Capone and Lucky Luciano are also characters. (Nucky himself is based on a real person.)
Does Boardwalk Empire sound like your kind of show? Chime in below!
