Luck

Just a month and a half ago it was announced that HBO had ordered a second season for their horse racing drama Luck. Now HBO has announced that production on the show, which starred Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, has been shut down permanently.

The decision comes on the heels of an incident which saw the euthanization of a horse—the third such incident in just a little over one season. The show was in the middle of filming the second episode of their second season when the latest accident occurred. At first the plan was to just film scenes without any horses involved, but clearly no adequate solutions to solve the problem were figured out.

You can read a statement released by HBO from producers David Milch and Michael Mann below.

It is with heartbreak that executive producers David Milch and Michael Mann together with HBO have decided to cease all future production on the series Luck.

Safety is always of paramount concern. We maintained the highest safety standards throughout production, higher in fact than any protocols existing in horseracing anywhere with many fewer incidents than occur in racing or than befall horses normally in barns at night or pastures. While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won’t in the future. Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision.

We are immensely proud of this series, the writing, the acting, the filmmaking, the celebration of the culture of horses, and everyone involved in its creation.

Quote from Michael Mann and David Milch: “The two of us loved this series, loved the cast, crew and writers. This has been a tremendous collaboration and one that we plan to continue in the future.”
