Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk is an English teacher going through a major midlife crisis in the brand-new trailer forLucky Hank Odenkirk started his relationship with AMC when he played slimy attorney Saul Goodman in the timelessseries Breaking Bad The star then went back to elaborate upon the character of Goodman, and his different other identities, in the well-known spinoff Better Call Saul.
Now Better Call Saul has actually concluded its time on the air, however Odenkirk’s relationship with AMC is not at an end, as he’s back for the brand-new series Lucky Hank (whose most current trailer was simply launched by AMC+).
After so memorably playing a sleazy attorney with underworld connections in Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul, Odenkirk now sinks his teeth into the function of a respectable-seeming college teacher, who plainly is handling some heavy things of his own (though it’s not likely he’ll wind up doing anything as heavy as almost passing away of thirst in the desert after getting $7 million in bail cash).
Everything We Know About Lucky Hank
The summary for Lucky Hank checks out, “An English department chairman at an underfunded college, Professor Hank Devereaux toes the line between midlife crisis and full-blown meltdown, navigating the offbeat chaos in his personal and professional life – oddly proving tantrums get better with age.”
Originally entitled Straight Man (likewise the name of the 1997 Richard Russo unique upon which the program is based), Lucky Hank boasts co-showrunners in Aaron Zelman (Law & & Order) and Paul Lieberstein (The Office). In addition to Odenkirk, the revealed cast consists of Mireille Enos, Jacki Gunn, Olivia Scott Welch, Diedrich Bader, Sara Amini, Cedric Yarbrough andSuzanne Cryer The program’s visitor cast functions Kyle MacLachlan, Oscar Nunez, Tom Bower and Chris Diamantopoulos.
Set to run for 8 one-hour episodes, Lucky Hank season 1 boasts Green Book helmer Peter Farrelly as a director. Those who liked Odenkirk as the ever-shifty (however eventually redeemed) Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman in the Breaking Bad universe will no doubt wish to take a look at how he deals with playing a grumbling (and impressivly bearded) college teacher in his most recent program for AMC. Lucky Hank premieres March 19 on AMC+
