Boardwalk Empire

HBO Home Entertainment is proud to announce that the critically-acclaimed, epic crime drama Boardwalk Empire: The Complete First Season will be available to buy on January 9, 2012.

Steve Buscemi stars in this explosive HBO drama series set at the dawn of the Prohibition era, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.

Charting the birth of organised crime, the series chronicles the life and times of Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Buscemi), the Atlantic City treasurer whose double role as politician and bootlegger makes him the most powerful man on the Boardwalk.

Buscemi is accompanied by an outstanding all-star cast depicting real life people from gangster legend including British stars Kelly MacDonald (Gosford Park, No Country for Old Men) as Margaret Schroeder, Stephen Graham (This is England, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) as Al Capone, plus Michael Pitt (Funny Game, The Dreamers) as Jimmy Boyd, Michael Shannon (Man of Steel, Machine Gun Preacher) as Agent Nelson Van Alden and Shea Whigham (Take Shelter, The Lincoln Lawyer) as Nucky’s younger brother Eli Thompson.
