I'm so disappointed to hear Season 2 has been cancelled. I'm totally addicted to all the HBO tv productions and am really looking forward to watching Season One on Showcase this weekend.

In this provocative look at the worlds of horseracing and gambling, told through a diverse group of characters surrounding a California racetrack, Michael Mann directs Dustin Hoffman as intuitive tough guy Chester 'Ace' Bernstein, who has always been involved with gambling, from bookmaking and money laundering to casino operations.

Recently released from prison after three years, he teams with Gus Economou (Dennis Farina), his longtime chauffeur and muscle, to craft a complex plan involving the Santa Anita Racetrack in California. As they plot out Ace's strategy, the pair recruits Turo Escalante (John Ortiz), a successful trainer with a sordid reputation.

In the meantime, an old trainer (Nick Nolte) nurtures a possible breakthrough thoroughbred, while a ragtag group of four racetrack groupies band together to try to catch lightning in a bottle - as winners of an elusive Pick Six bet.

The ensemble cast includes Kevin Dunn, Richard Kind, Jason Gedrick, Ritchie Coster, Ian Hart, Tom Payne, Kerry Condon, Gary Stevens and Jill Hennessy.
