Lucky Hank Teaser: Bob Odenkirk's Hank Devereaux Is A "Talented" Man
With the Bob Odenkirk-starring series set to hit AMC/AMC+ on March 19th, here's a look at the newest teaser for Lucky Hank.

And for an even better sense of what Odenkirk's Prof. Devereaux, Jr. is all about, check out these previously-released previews for Odenkirk's upcoming return to AMC:
"I am thrilled that AMC is embracing the unique scenario and characters in Paul and Aaron's adaptation of 'Straight Man' [show's original title]," Odenkirk shared in a statement at the time that the series order was first announced. "I have loved the mix of comedy and drama in 'Better Call Saul,' and this is another story with a unique dynamic and the kind of closely observed character writing and exploration that AMC has become the touchstone for. It's going to be fun to play and watch!" Aaron Zelman (Silicon Valley, The Killing) and Paul Lieberstein (The Office, The Newsroom), who adapted the project from the novel Straight Man by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo, serve as co-showrunners. Zelman, Lieberstein, Odenkirk, Director Peter Farrelly (Green Book), Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire), Richard Russo, Naomi Odenkirk and Marc Provissiero (PEN15) are executive producers.
