Director Michael Mann does his best Dick Cheney snarl.
"The pilot is about a bunch of intersecting lives in the world of the horse racing track,” Milch told Daily Variety. "It’s a subject which has engaged and some might say has compelled me for 50 years. I’ve joked that if I just can make $25 million on this show, I’ll be even on research expenses."
Milch has been involved in the sport of kings for years, having owned nearly 100 horses and notching wins at the Breeder's Cup.
Combining Milch's mastery of story and dialogue with Mann's talents behind the camera could be awesome.
