Stan Lee and “Downton Abbey” producer Carnival Films have teamed up for a new drama, described as “a different kind of superhero show,” on the UK’s Sky1 channel, called “Lucky Man.” The network has released three new featurettes in anticipation for the series, introducing us to the characters and central concept of the show.
From an idea by 94-year-old Lee, “Lucky Man” follows Harry Clayton (James Nebitt), a London homicide detective, who’s mysteriously given a bracelet that allows him to control his luck. The series also stars Eve Best (“Nurse Jackie”), Sienna Guillory (“Luther”), Amara Karan (“The Darjeeling Limited”), Darren Boyd (“Fortitude”), Omid Djalili (“Moonfleet”), Jing Lusi (“Holby City”) and Kenneth Tsang (“Die Another Day”).
