Luck - Blu-rays, DVDs for HBO's David Milch-Created Series Starring Dustin Hoffman
Late-November street date for these 4-disc sets
Posted by David Lambert
From David Milch (Deadwood, NYPD Blue) and Michael Mann (Public Enemies, Ali), this one-hour drama centers on an intuitive tough guy named Chester "Ace" Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman), who has always been involved with gambling, from bookmaking and money laundering to casino operations. Recently released from prison after three years, he teams with Gus Demitriou (Dennis Farina), his longtime chauffeur and muscle, to craft a complex plan involving the Santa Anita Racetrack in California.
As they plot out Ace's strategy, the pair recruits Turo Escalante (John Ortiz), a successful trainer with a sordid reputation. In the meantime, an old trainer (Nick Nolte) nurtures a possible breakthrough thoroughbred, while a ragtag group of four racetrack groupies band together to try to catch lightning in a bottle - as winners of an elusive Pick Six bet.
HBO has announced that Luck - The Complete 1st Season (and the show's only season; it's already been canceled) is coming to DVD and Blu-ray Disc on November 27th. The 4-disc sets are priced at $59.99 SRP for the DVD, and $79.98 SRP for the Blu-ray version. Bonus material (if any) hasn't been announced yet, but here's a look at the packaging for both versions:
