Shudder, the leading subscription video on demand service for thriller, suspense and horror, has acquired all three seasons of the bold, action packed crime thriller Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for US release, produced by Carnival Films.
Based on the original idea from legendary comic book writer Stan Lee, Lucky Man is a story about luck, fate, gambling, superstition and the consequences of our actions. It follows DI Harry Clayton – a brilliant, yet troubled cop from London’s notorious Murder Squad who is also a compulsive gambler in danger of losing the thing he values most: his family. As he’s approaching rock bottom, he meets the beautiful and enigmatic Eve at a casino who gives him a mysterious bracelet that grants him with the power to control luck. But it comes at a price.
Stan Lee said: “I’ve always been captivated by the subject of luck, and I thought it would be fascinating to explore a character who is bestowed an immense amount of fortune, but with a twist: the good comes with the bad. Turns out, I was right! I’m thrilled that U.S. audiences will now be lucky enough to see Stan Lee’s Lucky Man.”
Full of action, adventure and compelling characters, the show features some of the UK’s leading talent including the BAFTA award-winning James Nesbitt (The Hobbit Trilogy, The Missing, Cold Feet), Amara Karan (The Night Of, The Darjeeling Limited, Kidnap and Ransom), Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Retribution, Fortitude, Luther, Love Actually), and Stephen Hagan (Zoo, Risen).
James Nesbitt commented: “I’m really proud of the success of Lucky Man in the UK and it gives me great pleasure that our show is now being shown on an incredibly brilliant platform such as AMC’s Shudder.”
