"Boardwalk Empire" (HBO, 9 p.m.), Sunday, Sept. 19

Martin Scorsese executive-produced and directed the pilot for this brash pocket epic about Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition -- sort of "Deadwood" meets "The Sopranos," in its exploration of fact-based crime and place. Created by "Sopranos" vet Terence Winter, with art-house favorite Steve Buscemi as courtly kingpin "Nucky" Thompson. And some nice, old cars.
