David Milch, who raced champion Gilded Time and Breeders' Cup Mile winner Val Royal, is collaborating with major Hollywood producer and director Michael Mann on an HBO series named "Luck" that would focus on the culture of the racetrack.
Milch wrote the pilot, and the shoot is scheduled for April, most likely at Santa Anita Park.
According to Variety, Mann is close to a deal to direct. He and Milch have been friends since the 1980s, when Milch was executive producer of "Hill Street Blues" and Mann was executive producer of "Miami Vice." Milch won an Emmy Award as a writer for "Hill Street Blues" and later was a co-creator of the Emmy Award-winning drama "NYPD Blue."
