Just as the third season gets underway on Pay TV, Free to Air viewers will finally get to see HBO drama Boardwalk Empire on SBS later this month.
The series will play as double episodes from 9:30pm Saturday September 29th, and kicks off with the Martin Scorsese pilot.
In January 1920, America is preparing for the onset of a federal law prohibiting the sale of alcohol – but in the hedonistic New Jersey beach resort of Atlantic City, politician and gangster Nucky Thompson is gearing up to exploit the ban for his own personal gain. However, he soon finds himself struggling to keep his former protégé Jimmy Darmody under control – and must also deal with his unexpected attraction to Margaret Schroeder, a pregnant housewife. Martin Scorsese directs the pilot episode of the drama, which stars Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and Kelly MacDonald.
