But ... HBO announced yesterday that non the less than Dustin Hoffman will be part of the cast which includes also Dennis Farina, Nick Nolte and the famous rider Gary Stevens, who appeared also in the film Seabiscuit (which I personaly didn't see for the reason mention before ).
Luck will begin shooting this fall in Los Angeles, with locations including the Santa Anita Park racetrack.
The pilot episode is written by David Milch (NYPD Blue), and directed by ... Michael Mann
Now, I am interested !! At least for the pilot
