Dustin Hoffman

I'm Holding a WAKE

for My Dead TV Show

3/16/2012 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

HBO Luck wake invitation
First step is denial ... then anger ... then comes the AFTER PARTY ... at least , that's how the big shots behind "Luck" are grieving the death of their show.

TMZ has learned "Luck" star Dustin Hoffman ... along with director Michael Mann and executive producer David Milch are throwing a "wake" at a fancy Hollywood restaurant tonight to thank the cast and crew for "all the beautiful work."

As we previously reported, HBO decided to cancel the show this week after a 3rd horse died on the set.

Rest in peace.

this is really an arrogant group of producers and stars - they didn't spend what was needed to make the production safe for animals, they didn't give their crew a penny when they fired them, but now they are gonna spend a bunch of money for a "party" that is really a bunch of horse zhit!

Is the wake for you or is it for the unfortunate horses? Didn't you have enough sense and money to retire gracefully?

They should be holding a wake for the 3 horses that were killed on their sets, and otherwise try to show some sense of decency and digniry. Why do these people always trivialize serious things by their flippant behavior & disregard for other living things? Sad..

He should have held a wake for his dead career about 20 years ago.

Believe what you will. The crew cared deeply for the animals on set. I actually took in a cat I found near some rail road tracks in whittier.She now has a happy home. The crew was composed of some of the most talented and thoughtful people in the industry. The way we are being smeared is a disgrace. write and think what you will. You'll never understand how a hundred lives, people with family's to care for, were thrown off the rails, to save face. We loved our show, we loved our animals. You'll never hear this story, because it's about people.

HAHA, way to stick it to those idiot animal rights activist.
It's a horse people get over it. How come people don't get upset when a stuntman dies and production doesn't stop.

Worry about people not animals. If it wasn't for animals dying the human race wouldn't have survived.

Now I'm gonna go eat a huge steak and some bacon!
