Although best known for TV drama, including "The Sopranos" (HBO 1999-2007) and "Boardwalk Empire" (HBO 2010-14), Terence Winter was a lawyer before getting his first break in TV at the Warners Bros. Sitcom Writers Workshop. Early work included "The Cosby Mysteries" (NBC 1994), "Sister, Sister" (ABC/The WB 1994-99), "Xena Warrior Princess" (Syndicated 1995-2001) and "Flipper" (Syndicated 1995-2000), which was also Winter's first producer credit. However Winter seemed to really hit his stride when he joined the writing team at HBO's critically acclaimed "The Sopranos". He would go on to write 25 episodes, produce 73 episodes, star as Tom Amberson in three episodes and win three Emmys for his work on the show. While still working on "The Sopranos," Winter added film to his growing resume with the 50 Cent biopic "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" (2005), as well as writing the accompanying videogame "50 Cent: Bulletproof". This was followed by the crime drama "Brooklyn Rules" (2007) before he made his directorial debut with "The Sopranos" episode 'Walk Like A Man' (2007). Drawing on his experience with the aforementioned mob drama, Winter created "Boardwalk Empire" for HBO, a period piece chronicling the life of Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi), a notorious racketeer in prohibition era Atlantic City. Martin Scorsese directed the opening episode of "Boardwalk Empire" and Winter worked with him again, adapting Jordan Belfort's account of 1990s excess in "The Wolf of Wall Street" (2013). The film was nominated for five Oscars including Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay for Winter.
