According to the Live Feed, HBO has given a pilot order to 'Luck,' a new drama series about the world of horse racing and gambling. Milch, who has already written two series for HBO (the critically-acclaimed 'Deadwood' and the, uh, not-so-critically-acclaimed 'John From Cincinnati') will write the pilot, with Mann on tap to direct.

Prior to his success with HBO, Milch also served as executive producer on the 2008 'Last of the Ninth' cop drama pilot. In addition, Milch has won a combined four Emmy awards, including wins for his work on the hit series 'NYPD Blue' and 'Hill Street Blues.'David MilchApparently, David Milch (pictured) and Michael Mann are feeling a little lucky.

Incidentally, Milch is also the proud owner of thoroughbred racehorses, including two Breeders' Cup champions.

Mann, on the other hand, has written and produced both television and theatrical releases. He served as executive producer on 'Crime Story' and 'Miami Vice,' and most recently directed the 2009 crime flick 'Public Enemies,' starring Johnny Depp, and earned an Oscar nomination for directing 1999's 'The Insider.'

'Luck' is part of a larger group of upcoming HBO pilots, including the Terrence Winter/Martin Scorsese collaboration 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'Game of Thrones' and the comedy 'Enlightened' (read more about the 'Enlightened' cast here).
