Dustin Hoffman is grieving the cancellation of his canceled show “Luck” by hosting a wake. Hoffman, executive producer David Milch and director Michael Mann are cohosting the sad event at an undisclosed Hollywood restaurant in appreciation of the cast and crew.
HBO canceled “Luck” earlier this week following the death of a horse on the set — the third such thoroughbred death since the show began filming in 2010. “Luck” focused on the downside of horse racing, and will air the two remaining episodes of the first season.
“While we maintained the highest safety standards possible, accidents unfortunately happen and it is impossible to guarantee they won’t in the future,” an HBO statement read. “Accordingly, we have reached this difficult decision.”
Are you sad that “Luck” is off the air?
