Your first peek at the making of HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire'
On a waterfront lot in an industrial Brooklyn neighborhood, HBO is busy at work on its new series "Boardwalk Empire," a Prohibition-era drama about the rise of a corrupt Atlantic City politician. Steve Buscemi stars in the series, which was created by one of the writers of "The Sopranos." For the ambitious project, whose pilot was directed by Martin Scorsese, producers built a 300-foot-long boardwalk complete with 1920s-era shops. Above, check out a time-lapse video showing the three-month-long construction of the set, condensed into two minutes.
