As if we're already having enough trouble keeping up with HBO's ridiculously stacked lineup of programming (this writer is still catching up on the first season of "Boardwalk Empire") here comes another show that is definitely going to be added to our Must Watch pile.

The network has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the upcoming horse racing world drama "Luck" and yeah, it looks fucking great. As if pairing up director Michael Mann and writer David Milch ("Deadwood," "NYPD Blue") wasn't enough, HBO as usual have gone out and cast the shit out of this thing. Dustin Hoffman leads the cast the ruthless ex-con gambler, Ace Bernstein, with Michael Gambon as his nemesis; Dennis Farina plays Ace’s right-hand man; Nick Nolte as former famous trainer named The Old Man; John Ortiz plays a Peruvian trainer with a seedy reputation known as ‘Escalante’; Joan Allen plays a woman who runs a prison program that uses inmates to care for broken-down racehorses; Richard Kind is a forty-something jockey’s agent; Ian Hart is a loudmouth gambler who runs into some cash with Kevin Dunn, Kerry Condon, Tom Payne and Patrick J. Adams rounding things out.

"Luck" hits HBO in 2012 so get your DVRs ready. Watch the trailer below.
