HBO Teases The Premiere Of Michael Mann And David Milch's Luck
Those looking to fill the inevitable void after the second season finale of everyone's favorite gangster series, well, you don't even have to change the channel. HBO's brand new show called Luck should definitely appeal to the Boardwalk Empire crowd, and it's no coincidence that the pay-cable network scheduled a sneak peek of the pilot to follow the season ender of the Prohibition drama. Here is another brief look at the rapidly approaching new show.
It's rather odd that the pre-premiere of HBO's big new series Luck takes place in under two weeks, and they've yet to really make an effort in the advertising department. There are no publicity stills on the HBO website and only a few promotional videos thus far, including the snappy new teaser below. Called the "Quiet" trailer, it comes across as anything but, showcasing all the major players and some of the stunning camera work, all set to a snappy tune that can't help but rouse memories of The Sopranos (at least for me). Take a look at the 30-second spot and see if it doesn't get you ready for the races.
The new spot also announces a firm date for the beginning of the series' actual run on HBO. Luck debuts on Sunday, January 29th but, as mentioned above, the pay cabler will air a special screening of the pilot after the Boardwalk Empire season two finale on Sunday, December 11th, at 10 p.m. ET. Now, a closing note on the lack of advertising for the series -- I'm starting to suspect that HBO knows they have quality on their hands and that after this preview screening of the pilot, the buzz from critics, fans, everyone will begin the real promotional push for the new series. I'm excited, giddy up.
Luck stars Dustin Hoffman, Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, John Ortiz, Kevin Dunn, Richard Kind, and Kerry Condon. It is from executive producers David Milch, Michael Mann and Carolyn Strauss.
