HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for a second season after the show premiered to an impressive 4.8 million viewers on Sunday night. The debut episode was the largest premiere on the network since the March 2004 premiere of “Deadwood” (which had “The Sopranos” as lead-in):

“All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson’s initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese’s enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi,” said Lombardo. “The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing.”

Including repeats at 10:15 and 11:30 p.m., the episode was watched by a combined 7.1 million viewers.

TCA 2010: HBO says Boardwalk Empire pilot cost $18M

When HBO does television, they do it big (after all…”It’s not TV, it’s HBO”). However, this is really, really big.

Variety reports that the pilot episode of  Boardwalk Empire , directed by Martin Scorsese, cost a massive $18 million (with tax breaks–so the actual cost was even higher).

“I kept thinking ‘This is pointless. How can we possibly afford a boardwalk, or an empire?’?” Writer Terence Winter recalls. “We can’t call it ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and not see a boardwalk.”

Winter, a longtime writer-producer on “The Sopranos,” worried that even with Martin Scorsese as a producer, the project was too ambitious for the smallscreen. Winter had found in his research that the boardwalk back then amounted to “Times Square on the ocean.” Such scope seemed impossible to reproduce authentically for a TV series.
