Marvel king Stan Lee has signed on for his first UK drama production. His company POW! entertainment has teamed up with Carnival (Downton Abbey) Films for a 10 part crime drama with a twist called Lucky Man that will air on Sky 1 in 2016.
Nesbitt will play down at heel London cop Harry Clayton who, heavily in debt thanks to a big gambling habit, finds his luck turning around for the better when he is given a strange bracelet. But is the bracelet all it seems and has it given Harry the power to control luck?
Co-stars include Sienna Guillory (currently starring inthe highly scary Fortitude), Eve Best, Darren Boyd (also in Fortitude), Omid Djalili and Kenneth Tsang.
Executive producers are Richard Fell and Gareth Neame for Carnival, Anne Mensah and Beverley Booker for Sky with Stan and Gill Champion acting as co-exec producers. Series creator is Neil Biswas.
