HBO is getting back into horse racing. The premium cable network has renewed David Milch’s newest series, Luck, which premiered on Sunday night to a less than stellar 1.06 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. The pickup is for ten additional episodes, which will air in January 2013. Production on the second season is slated to begin in February.
Speaking of the renewal Michael Lombardo, President of HBO Programming, said “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the critical response to this beautiful piece of work and we are very excited about where David and Michael plan to take these incredible characters.”
