HBO does a lot of things well, but nobody can touch their trailer game for TV shows. They could take a show about a dolphin and whale getting it on and make it look like a Scorsese masterpiece in the trailer. Fortunately for HBO, ‘Boardwalk Empire’ is pretty much the TV version of a Scorsese masterpiece (he’s an executive producer) but that doesn’t stop them from putting out teaser trailers that really peak your interest. According to Michael K. Williams, who plays Chalky White, season 5 will take place seven years after season 4, which puts the show in the time frame of the Great Depression.
