With Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season we see the conclusion to the story of Enoch ‘Nucky’ Thompson (Steve Buscemi) in some episodes that are easily the best the show has offered over the years.

Maxine Peake is to star in a new British film about a female comedian trying to crack the notorious Northern club circuit of the 1970s. Funny Cow will be a gritty drama depicting the unfunny side of a business that to this day is unfair to women, though the setting is a harsher environment than most. Co-starring Martin Freeman and screenplay writer Tony Pitts, the impressive cast also features John Hannah and Stephen Graham. Though best known for her TV roles in the UK, Peake has been moving steadily toward the big screen, starring in romantic comedy Run And Jump and thriller Keeping Rosy. Her careful choices, usually involving uncompromising material, should make her perfect casting for this tough-talking role.
Production commences this year, with Tinge Krishnan in the director’s chair and Richard Hawley providing the soundtrack. The producers are Pow Films and Moviehouse Entertainment’s Mark Vennis. Peake »
