Introducing Boardwalk Empire

rexfeatures_1090808x.jpg

If you liked Mad Men (and who didn't?) then you're going to love Boardwalk Empire - the slick TV drama that's causing a colossal buzz in the US and landing here next month.

Set in Twenties Atlantic City during the Prohibition era, it centres around corrupt politician Enoch 'Nucky' Johnson (Steve Buscemi) - a real life figure who worked with the mafia to keep liquor flowing - and his relationship with Margaret Shroeder, a mother abused by her husband (played by British actress Kelly MacDonald, who first shot to fame as school girl Diane in 1996's Trainspotting).

The show kicks off on Tuesday 1st February at 9pm on Sky Atlantic, but Stylist.co.uk readers can get a sneaky first look by watching the trailer below (be warned - things get a tad violent!).
