HBO Debuts Dustin Hoffman ‘Luck’ Trailer (Video)

The HBO horse racing drama from Michael Mann and David Milch stars Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte

With the pedigree for the horseracing drama "Luck"– starring Dustin Hoffman, directed by Michael Mann, and produced by "Deadwood" creator David Milch — HBO could have thrown up a video with nothing but the players' names and shots of some ponies.

Though the trailer (actually more of a teaser) the cable network debuted last night for the 2012 drama is brief, it promises a show about racing itself, training, gambling, and whatever led to Hoffman's character spending three years in prison.

Check out the clip for "Luck," which also stars Nick Nolte, Dennis Farina, Richard Kind, Jill Hennessy and Jason Gedrick:
