After airing just one pilot episode of "Luck," from "Deadwood" creator David Milch and yet another filmmaker transitioning to quality cable, Michael Mann, HBO has already renewed the racetrack series for a second season. HBO cites the series' "overwhelming critical acclaim"--as well as a gross audience of 3.3 million viewers to date. Production is set to resume at the end of February at Santa Anita Park and other locations; the ten-episode pickup is scheduled to air in January 2013. (TOH's review is here).

"Luck," a behind-the-scenes look at the world of horse racing and track gambling, boasts a sprawling ensemble led by Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte.  Season one regulars include Dennis Farina, John Ortiz, Richard Kind, Kevin Dunn, Ian Hart, Ritchie Coster, Jason Gedrick, Kerry Condon, Gary Stevens, Tom Payne, and Jill Hennessy. The exec producers are Milch, Mann and Carolyn Strauss; co-exec producers are Henry Bronchtein and Eric Roth; star Hoffman also serves as producer.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled with the critical response to this beautiful piece of work,” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, “and we are very excited about where David and Michael plan to take these incredible characters.”
