HBO has some of the best original programming on television, so I was look forward to new pilots coming from the pay cabler.
The projects include “Boardwalk Express,” that tells the story of the birth of organized crime in Atlantic City, circa 1920s. The show is exec produced by Martin Scorsese, ‘Sopranos’ alum Terence Winter, and “Entourage” team Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson.
Other projects greenlit include a new half-hour comedy called “Washingtonienne,” based on the novel by Jessica Cutler. The show will be about the main characters sex life with real life political figures in D.C. Sarah Jessica Parker is exec producing.
And finally, an hourlong drama about the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
I don’t know about you, but Boardwalk Express sounds pretty freakin awesome.
