Luck: Season 1

A provocative look at the worlds of horse racing and gambling told through a diverse group of characters surrounding a California racetrack. Dustin Hoffmann plays Chester 'Ace' Bernstein, a tough guy with a long history in dirty pool. Recently released after three years in prison, Ace and his longtime chauffeur and muscle (Dennis Farina) craft a complex plan to reverse the sagging fortunes of the Santa Anita Racetrack. Meanwhile, four dissolute gamblers at the track pool their resources in an effort to win an elusive Pick Six bet while a weathered trainer (Nick Nolte) sees a second chance in an untested thoroughbred. From acclaimed director Michael Mann ("Heat") and the creator of "Deadwood" David Milch.
