Boardwalk Empire May Be The Most Predictable

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Martin Scorsese was involved in the project even before creator Terence Winter. He directed the pilot and established the look of the show, which other directors later emulated to make the show feel seamless. He is also one of the executive producers of the show. Winter stated that Scorsese weighs on the casting decisions, watches all the cuts and dailies. Up until the shooting of the show's first season, Scorsese and Winter would meet every Sunday afternoon to review what went on during the week where Scorsese would have comments and suggestions. Martin Scorsese is expected to continue to be creatively involved in the ongoing production and if the series continues—with proper scheduling—he would like to direct more episodes.

Besides the fact that everyone we met from HBO and the production, including executive producer and writer Terence Winter, was extremely gracious, I also have to say that the boardwalk set was amazing! I've posted some previous video of the buildup, and there are some pictures of the set floating around the Internet, but in person, the set is extremely impressive. It is a little bit of 1920's A.C. transported to Brooklyn. Complete with storefronts, Steel Pier, and a replica of the Ritz Carlton lobby. It seemed to me that Nelson Johnson, who is a historian on the subject, seemed equally impressed.

Through most of the 20th century, Atlantic City was controlled by a powerful partnership of local politicians and racketeers. Funded by payoffs from gambling rooms, bars, and brothels, this corrupt alliance reached full bloom during the reign of Enoch “Nucky” Johnson — the second of three bosses to head the Republican machine that dominated city politics and society.
