In this crime drama set in the 1920s, organized criminals and corrupt politicians struggle to control the underworld of Atlantic City, New Jersey. The series aired on HBO from 2010 to 2014. Boardwalk Empire is a period drama focusing on Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (based on the historical Enoch L. Johnson), a political figure who rises to prominence and controls Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. Nucky interacts with historical characters in both his personal and political life, including mobsters, politicians, government agents, and the common folk who look up to him. The federal government also takes an interest in the bootlegging and other illegal activities in the area, sending agents to investigate possible mob connections as well as Nucky's lifestyle—expensive and lavish for a county political figure. The final season jumps ahead seven years, to 1931, as Prohibition nears its end.

Boardwalk Empire is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (57 episodes). The series first aired on September 19, 2010.
