HBO’s Luck to shut down for good following latest horse death (via Deadline)
In sad news for both lovers of horses and lovers of well-done television drama, a third horse recently died during the production of the second season of Luck, which has now led to the show’s cancellation.
Previously, HBO had said it would just suspend any shooting that involves horses - presumably, a network exec then rewatched the first season and exclaimed “Gee, pretty much the ENTIRE show involves horses,” then pulled the plug all together. Main takeaway: Taking into account the premature demises of both Deadwood and John from Cincinnati,  David Milch is now officially the most cursed showrunner in all of television.
