'Luck' (HBO, 1/29)
Director Michael Mann, Deadwood creator David Milch and Dustin Hoffman have teamed up for Luck, a new drama on HBO that goes deep inside the world of horse racing. The show promises to be as dark and intense as the best of HBO's dramas, so, as a word of warning, don't get too attached to any of the horses. Or the gamblers and jockeys, for that matter . . .
