The semi-fictionalized account of the life of South Jersey, Prohibition-era political boss Enoch “Nucky” Johnson, “Empire Boardwalk” premieres next month with a $10 million ad campaign.

Caesar’s, one of the city’s biggest casino/hotels, says it has set aside 1,920 rooms for $19.20 a night in the two weeks after “Boardwalk Empire” debuts.
