Lucky Hank Teaser Trailer Shows Bob Odenkirk’s New AMC Drama

AMC has finally dropped the teaser promo for Lucky Hankthe upcoming series adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo’s 1997 novel of the title Straight man. The series is scheduled to premiere on March 19 on AMC and AMC+.

The video teases Bob Odenkirk’s return to AMC, five months later Better call Saul completed its six seasons. It stars the Emmy-winning actor portraying Hank, a college professor that no one seems to like.

Lucky Hank will center on a midlife crisis narrative set at Railton College. The story will be told through the eyes of William Henry Devereaux, Jr. (Odenkirk), the unlikely chairman of the English department at a badly underfunded college in Pennsylvania’s rust belt.

Odenkirk is joined by Mireille Enos, Olivia Scott Welch, Suzanne Cryer, Diedrich Bader, Sara Amini and Cedric Yarbrough, along with Kyle MacLachlan, Tom Bower and Chris Diamantopoulos.

The series will be adapted and executive produced by Aaron Zelman and Paul Lieberstein, with Peter Farrelly attached to direct. Executive producers are Odenkirk, Farrelly, Russo, Naomi Odenkirk and Marc Provissiero. It is a production of Sony Pictures’ TriStar TV and Gran Via.

This marks Odenkirk’s latest collaboration with AMC after working with them for over seven years Breaking Bad prequel series Better call Saul. For his lead performance on the AMC series, he earned five Golden Globe nominations and ten Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
