Summer is yet to come, but HBO already promotes one of its fall programs, "Boardwalk Empire". While its second season was set in 1921, the period drama will jump to 1923 when it returns with a third season.

"New year, new rules," so Nucky's voice opens the teaser for the show's next chapter. Saying that he prefers to simplify things and put a bullet in his enemy's head, the corrupt politician seemingly ignores an unseen man's plea to be unharmed.

In addition to the teaser for "Boardwalk Empire" season 3, HBO has additionally shared a glimpse of its fresh series "The Newsroom". The first trailer for the Aaron Sorkin-created drama offers a look at Jeff Daniels' Will, an anchor with good reputation who is on the brink of losing his audience after having a meltdown.

He loses control during a Q&A session with students, and gets emotional during the taping on his news show, leading to an executive of the channel's parent company threatening to fire him. Speaking to his boss about how he handles his show, Will says, "Progress is slow, but I'm in it for the long haul."

"The Newsroom" will premiere Sunday, June 24 with Emily Mortimer, Dev Patel, Alison Pill and Olivia Munn joining the regular cast ensemble. Jane Fonda will recur as Leona Lansing, CEO of Atlantis World Media, the parent company of the fictional Atlantis Cable News, for which Will works.
