CHICAGO – In the heat of HBO summer broadcasting, currently in seasons of “True Blood” “Entourage” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” the network has announced some important dates coming this fall. Most importantly, the hit crime drama “Boardwalk Empire” is set to make its season two debut on Sunday September 25.

“Boardwalk” had a very successful first season for HBO, collecting Golden Globe wins in ‘Best Television Series-Drama’ and ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series-Drama’ (Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson). The show has also been nominated in this year’s Emmy Awards for ‘Best Drama Series’ ‘Best Actor-Drama’ (Steve Buscemi) and ‘Best Supporting Actress- Drama’ (Kelly MacDonald).

The show’s second season will once again be produced by legendary director Martin Scorsese, as well as the show’s creator, Terence Winter.

HBO also announced the release dates on several other series returning this fall and another series set to debut. The comedy series “Hung” will begin its third season on Sunday, October 2. Starring Thomas Jane and Jane Adams, the series follows the story of a middle aged man turned gigolo, a profession one could say he had a calling for—see show title.

Following “Hung” on Sunday, October 2 is the debut of the second season of “How to Make It in America.” Produced by Mark Wahlberg, the show follows two entrepreneurs who are looking to hit it big in the clothing industry of New York with their new line “Crisp.”

The third season of the detective/comedy series “Bored to Death” will debut Monday, October 10. The series, starring Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, and Zach Galifianakis, follows Jonathan, a Brooklyn writer who turns to working as an unlicensed private detective to add some excitement into his life.

Finally, the new series “Enlightened” will make its television debut right after “Bored to Death” on Monday, October 10. Laura Dern stars in this comedy/drama about a health and beauty executive who has a terrible public breakdown and, after some rehab and meditation, must come back from the hardship to try to live a more illuminated existence.
