April 3rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Stan ‘the man’ Lee has created a new series exclusively for Sky1 in the Uk and we can’t wait t see it!

Working with the producers of  Downton Abbey, Carnival Films, Lee and his POW! Entertainment are creating Lucky Man, a ten episode mini series starring James Nesbitt as a police man in control of his own luck.

Check out the full synopsis below:

“Lucky Man is the story of DI Harry Clayton (James Nesbitt), 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… It appears to give Harry control over luck itself, but at what cost? What is luck anyway, and is one man’s luck always another’s misfortune? DI Harry Clayton is about to find out…”

Talking about the series, Lee said: “Luck has always been a fascinating subject to me, and I am excited to finally share that fascination with audiences around the world. With all the creative projects I have worked on, I sure am a lucky man myself and I am excited to be working with Sky 1 and Carnival Films on this latest project”.

Lucky Man is expected to arrive on Sky 1 sometime in 2016. Eve Best, Sienna Guillory, Amara Karan, Darren Boyd, Omid Djalili, Jing Lusi and Kenneth Tsang co-star.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
