Shudder to Stream Stan Lee’s Lucky Man


All three seasons of the hit U.K. drama Stan Lee’s Lucky Man are set to launch on the SVOD service Shudder in the U.S.

Based on an original idea from the legendary comic book writer Stan Lee, Lucky Man 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, who gives him a mysterious bracelet that grants him with the power to control luck—but it comes at a price.

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.”

James Nesbitt, who stars in the series, commented: “I’m really proud of the success of Lucky Man in the U.K. and it gives me great pleasure that our show is now being shown on an incredibly brilliant platform such as AMC’s Shudder.”

Stan Lee’s Lucky Man is an ingenious supernatural twist on the crime thriller,” said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. “It’s exactly the kind of innovative series that Shudder members love and expect from us.”

Richard Fell, executive producer at producer Carnival Films, added: “We are thrilled that Lucky Man is going to be seen on Shudder. DI Clayton is another fantastic Stan Lee creation to add to all the others and we hope audiences in the U.S. will love him as much as our international audiences.”
