Terence Winter Set to Write Martin Scorcese's Boardwalk Empire
According to Variety, Winter's deal on Boardwalk Empire comes as part of a two-year extension of his overall deal with the network.
The drama, which hasn't yet been ordered to pilot, is based on Nelson Johnson's book "Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times and Corruption of Atlantic City," which revolves around the now-gambling mecca's early 20th century origins.
Winter rose up the ranks on The Sopranos to exec producer and later in its run helmed episodes of the hit drama -- which, like Boardwalk Empire, took place in New Jersey. He recently scored the WGA nod for drama series episode, for the The Sopranos seg "The Second Coming."
