'Luck': Get your first look at HBO's Dustin Hoffman-David Milch-Michael Mann drama
Based on the first look at the show below, it could turn out quite well.
There's not a lot of actual footage from the show in the featurette HBO has put online, but what is there feels pretty compelling. Hoffman's playing an organized-crime figure in the show, which centers on the world of horse racing, and as Mann points out, it's a kind of character he hasn't played that often before. He's surrounded by the likes of Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, Richard Kind and Kerry Condon; Jill Hennessy is a guest star in the pilot. Mann hasn't done TV work in a while, and this will be the first series for Milch, who's owned several horses, since "John From Cincinnati."
Yeah, count us interested. HBO hasn't set a premiere date yet, but we'll be there when it does.
Take a look at the "in production" video below. Does "Luck" strike your fancy?
