"Boardwalk Empire," a new HBO series, will be filming tomorrow on Clinton Ave. I know it's dorky, but I still get excited when I see TV shows and movies being filmed in the city.
Here's the DL from Wikipedia:
Boardwalk Empire is an upcoming American television series from premium cable network HBO, set in Atlantic City, New Jersey during the Prohibition era. The show is adapted from Nelson Johnson's book, Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City by Emmy award-winning screenwriter and producer Terence Winter of The Sopranos. The pilot episode was directed by Martin Scorsese and he is expected to continue to be creatively involved in the ongoing production. On September 1, 2009, HBO picked up the series for an additional 11 episodes, making the first season 12 episodes long, including the pilot. HBO has stated that the series will debut in the fall of 2010.
I hope we see Steve Buscemi in the hood! But set in Atlantic City? Hmm...
(Speaking of filming, "Damages" has been filming in the nabe quite often. I haven't seen it, but I hear the first season is awesome. I'll add it to the Netflix.)
