Here is the plot description for “Boardwalk Empire”:
Atlantic City, 1921: Though his fortunes have soared in the wake of the enactment of Prohibition, Nucky Thompson is paying a steep price for wielding ultimate power in “the world’s playground”. Following the 1920 election, Nucky finds himself the target of an investigation for voter fraud and faces not only jail but insurrection by some of those he considered his closest allies.
From Terence Winter (Emmy Award-winning writer of “The Sopranos”) and Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, “Boardwalk Empire” chronicles the life and times of Enoch “Nucky” Thompson. Equal parts politician and gangster, he’s the undisputed leader of Atlantic City. The Emmy-nominated, Golden Globe-winning drama series kicks off its 12-episode second season on Sept. 25, 2011 at 9 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on HBO followed by other episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time.
In season two, Nucky and his lieutenants (including young World War I veteran Jimmy Darmody) appear to have solidified their hold on power by rigging an election and getting a crony elected mayor. However, after a bloody KKK attack at Chalky White’s bootleg warehouse, Nucky finds his hold on Atlantic City weakened. Meanwhile, mobsters like Arnold Rothstein, Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky and Al Capone wait in the wings and look for the chance to grab a bigger piece of Nucky’s pie.
“Boardwalk Empire” stars Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson; Michael Pitt as Jimmy Darmody; Kelly Macdonald as Margaret Schroeder, Nucky’s mistress; Michael Shannon as federal agent Nelson Van Alden; Michael Kenneth Williams as Chalky White, leader of the city’s African-American community and Nucky’s bootleg point person; Gretchen Mol as Gillian, Jimmy’s showgirl mother; and Dabney Coleman as Commodore Louis Kaestner, Nucky’s mentor.
The show also features Shea Whigham as Nucky’s resentful brother Elias, the sheriff of Atlantic City; Vincent Piazza as Lucky Luciano; Stephen Graham as Al Capone; Michael Stuhlbarg as Arnold Rothstein; Aleksa Palladino as Angela Darmody, Jimmy’s wife; Anthony Laciura as Eddie Kessler, Nucky’s valet; and Jack Huston as Richard Harrow, a disfigured war veteran who’s been befriended by Jimmy.
