What’s it about
One of HBO¡¯s signature shows, this one-hour drama chronicles the life and times of Enoch ¡°Nucky¡± Thompson (Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi), Atlantic City¡¯s undisputed czar at a time when Prohibition proved to be a major catalyst in the rise of organized crime in America. Picking up 16 months after Season 2 ended, Season 3 begins on New Year¡¯s Eve 1922-23. The Roaring ¡®20s are about to start; though the economy is booming, alcohol has become scarce, competition is fierce, and gangster violence is heating up. Amidst this backdrop, Nucky, whose marriage to Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) has become a sham after she signed away his highway windfall to the church, faces new competition in the person of Gyp Rosetti (new cast member Bobby Cannavale), who builds a new strategic bulkhead between New York and Atlantic City in an effort to siphon off Nucky¡¯s alcohol business. The conflict brings out the best and worst in Nucky, who proves his brutal mettle in a series of violent encounters ¨C including a climatic facedown with Gyp in the Season 3 finale. New and familiar faces also undergo compelling metamorphoses as the 12 new episodes of Boardwalk Empire unfold.
