Carnival Films is teaming with comics alum Stan Lee and his POW! Entertainment for the super-hero crime thriller “Lucky Man” for pay TV network Sky1.
James Nesbitt plays detective Harry Clayton, a cop from Central London’s notorious Murder Squad, who is given a charm that seems to confer upon the wearer the ability to control luck.
Harry is down on his luck: his wife (Eve Best) and child have left him due to his gambling habit, his boss thinks he’s in league with the devil, and he has a huge debt to an infamous underworld crime boss who is threatening his life.
A chance meeting with a mysterious woman who gives him an ancient bracelet changes everything. The ten-episode, one-hour series is based on an original idea by Lee and will debut on Sky 1 in 2016.
