The ironically named series ‘Luck’ has been cancelled due to the death of a 3rd horse while filming. While I felt the characterization of the horse players was dreadful, the series did show promise of increasing interest in racing.
HBO TV show ‘Luck’ canceled over horse deaths | The Raw Story
The hit US television series ‘Luck’ starring Dustin Hoffman has been canceled after three horses died during filming, the channel which makes the show announced.
“Luck,” about thoroughbred racing and also starring Nick Nolte, launched in January and had already been picked up for a second season, with production mostly at a horsetrack east of Los Angeles.
