'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

LOS ANGELES — Prohibition-era television drama “Boardwalk Empire” will conclude after its fifth season, which is slated to air later this year, HBO said on Thursday.

“Boardwalk Empire,” a mob crime drama, stars Steve Buscemi as crooked Atlantic City treasurer Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, based on Enoch L. Johnson, a corrupt and powerful political boss of the 1920s Prohibition era.

The fifth season is scheduled to premiere in the fall.

The drama was created by “The Sopranos” writer and executive producer Terence Winter. Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese won an Emmy for his direction of the series' big-budget pilot that premiered in September 2010.

The series has won 17 Emmy awards since its debut, including Bobby Cannavale as best supporting actor in a drama series for his role as gangster Gyp Rosetti.

Meanwhile, “Game of Thrones” is set to return April 6, Sundays at 9 HBO announced. Its companions: “Veep,” starring Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus, returning for a third season at 10, and “Silicon Valley,” a new series from Mike Judge (“Office Space,” “King of the Hill”), about a group of young tech-industry entrepreneurs.

The season's first “Game” trailer will be shown on Sunday before the premiere of “True Detective,” a crime-thriller miniseries starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
