AMC has released the official trailer. Lucky Hankmini-series starring Bob Odenkirkreturns to work with the network after the final ending of Better Call Saul. The show was previously known as Straight Man, but these days it was decided to radically change its final title, which is less obscure.
“The saying “The third time is the right one” goes, but In the case of Bob Odenkirk on AMC, he was captivating, captivating, and instinctively funny the first and second time.” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios at AMC Networks.”As Better Call Saul begins its epic sixth and final season, we can’t be more excited at the prospect of keeping Bob at home on AMC and seeing him bring to life another nuanced, complex and memorable character. The chance to collaborate once again with Gran Via from our partners Sony Pictures Television and Mark Johnson is one of the icing on a very satisfying cake.“
Now that Better Call Saul is behind us (it’s a pity it didn’t win the Golden Globes last night), Odenkirk can already dive into this captivating mini-series. Lucky Hank is an eight-part midlife crisis story set at Railton College.. William Henry Devereaux, Jr., the unexpected head of the English department at an underfunded college in Pennsylvania. (Odenkirk) narrated in the first person. Aaron Zelman (Silicon Valley, The Killing) and Paul Lieberstein (The Office, The Newsroom), who adapted the project from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo’s novel Straight Man, serve as co-showrunners.
Earlier, Odenkirk discussed with Entertainment Weekly the difference in tone between Lucky Hank and Better Call Saul:
“I think it’s great in tone. It sounds like the new mix of comedy and drama we’ve been waiting for for a long time. It was as if we watched a very funny show like Parks and Rec and said, ‘Let’s slow down the pace, get to know these people and make their civil war a little more on the agenda’. Like this It’s a really cool mix between the kind of comedy and drama we got to see in Better Call Saul.“.
Lucky Hank will debut on AMC and AMC+ on March 19, 2023.
