“Boardwalk Empire” already scores second season from HBO


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Talk about vote of confidence!

After airing only one episode, HBO has announced it has renewed “Boardwalk Empire” for a second season.

The first episode drew an impressive 7.1 million viewers combined (over three hours, which included a re-airing after the premiere), according to the New York Times.

“All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson’s initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese’s enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi,” Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, said in a statement.

“The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing,” Lombardo continued.

There are 11 episodes left in the first season, which details the empire of Atlantic City leader Nucky Thompson (Buscemi) during the Prohibition Era. HBO did not clarify when the second season would begin, but this is a very good sign for initial fans of the early show.

    and perhaps, in the coming years, playing host to RED Chinese ‘peacekeeping
    assistance’ —-WHY does Scorsese remain SOOOOO stale, predictable and clueless?
    —————————–WHY???
