The Story Behind HBO's Cancellation of Luck

HBO has run out of Luck. On Wednesday, the pay cable network, along with executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann, announced an abrupt end to the Dustin Hoffman-starring drama, following news that three horses had died during production.

Whether it was the threat of continued negative press, or that no one could guarantee another horse would not perish during the run of the series, the surprising and quick decision to pull the plug has caused many in the media to theorize as to why.

HBO cancels Luck after three horses die during production

When a third horse died Tuesday during filming for the second episode of the second season, HBO quickly announced that all use of horses on the show would be suspended indefinitely. (Two other horses died last year during the filming of the first season.) But... read more

These are just a few of the racetrack terms that may be thrown around in HBO's new horse-racing series Luck, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c. From executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann, the gritty show looks at the owners, jockeys and the degenerate gamblers in the horse-racing world.

While the lingo, the setting and the overall story line may feel alien to those who don't frequent one of the more than 100 racetracks around the United States, Milch, the man behind Deadwood and NYPD Blue, says that shouldn't deter viewers from watching. "It's... read more

Weekend TV in Review: Good Wife, Luck, Spartacus, Hallmark's Moon

There really is no better or more satisfying drama on Sunday nights than CBS' delicious The Good Wife — and yes, I'm counting cable (even pay) in that equation, at least for now, while we're in between seasons of such dynamic signature shows as Homeland, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. (Although PBS' Downton Abbey comes close as the quintessential TV great escape.) This is especially true this Sunday, as Good Wife delivers a pivotal and sensationally entertaining episode (9/8c) firing on all burners. There's suspense, humor, memorable and electrifying showdowns between many of the major characters, pretty much everything you want from a show at the top of its game.
