Intriguing first look at Michael Mann and David Milch's new HBO series Luck

04.18.2011

Seriously, how great does Dustin Hoffman look in this?

HBO already delivered this past weekend with a truly great first episode of their new series "Game of Thrones", based on the fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin. And next up, they're looking to kick ass in the world of horse racing with the Michael Mann (COLLATERAL, "Crime Story") and David Milch ("Deadwood", "NYPD Blue") drama series "Luck".

Below we have a production featurette that's been put out by HBO, really effectively highlighting not only the show's content, but what looks to be two dynamite characters and performances from both the aforementioned Hoffman as well as grizzled tough guy Nick Nolte, an actor who just seems tailor-made for the sensibilities of Mann as a filmmaker/storyteller. It's great stuff and I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Extra Tidbit: Kinda wish the series had a better title than "Luck", though.

I wish he'd just do the Deadwood movies instead.

Awesome cast

MM is my favorite director of all-time and I cannot stand horse racing. Him and this cast alone will make me order HBO for the first time since the early Sorprano days.

I'd see this for Mann alone, but a serious Hoffman is a serious bonus. I prefer Dustin to drama rather than comedy.

HBO is on a roll right now with their new television shows, so yeah I will be watching this and most likely like everything else on the channel, it will be great.

I mean it's Michael Mann and David Milch with Dustin Hoffman.

promising

HBO pulled the plug on Deadwood, not Milch. He still considers it some of his finest work - [link]
Luck has all the makings to be just as great.

Sorry but I'll take a pass on anything Milch does from now on after being fucked over with my favorite show Deadwood. I won't watch anything he does through fear of him pulling the plug after I get addicted to it.

Do you really think Milch pulled the plug on his own show? Geez.

Don't have to bite the guy's head off. I always heard he stepped away from it to do that John From Cincinnati bullshit.
