    Michael Mann & David Milch's 'Luck' Renewed For Second Season

    Well, damn that was fast. And we certainly had our doubts. As we outlined in our review of the first season of "Luck," the HBO horse racing world drama starts off pretty slow, can be frustratingly obtuse at times and is stuffed to bursting with characters and subplots, but by the end of the season i...

    Michael Mann Hopes To Spin 'Gold' With 'Treasure Of The Sierra Madre'-Esque Tale By Paul Haggis
