Gam­bling’s all about the risk. Ei­ther you win big or you go home with an empty wal­let. And un­for­tu­nately for de­tec­tive in­spec­tor Harry Clay­ton (James Nes­bitt) in drama sci-fi show Stan Lee’s Lucky Man (2016-cur­rent), it’s more of the lat­ter than any­thing else. But that’s when Harry’s luck changes, right when he owes a very bad man a lot of cash. He meets a mys­te­ri­ous wo­man who gives him an an­cient bracelet that lets Harry con­trol his own luck!

Comic in­flu­ence The show is called Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for a rea­son – it was cre­ated by Stan, aka the king of Mar­vel Comics. The ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer adds that his show idea came from a fan ques­tion: “What su­per­power would I want? I al­ways sur­prise them by say­ing ‘luck’,” says Stan. And the lucky streak’s con­tin­ued: the 10-episode first sea­son has al­ready been re­newed. Fa­mous face Irish act­ing icon James most re­cently played Bo­fur the dwarf in The Hob­bit Tril­ogy (2012-2014) and at one stage he was also lined up to take over as James Bond. While that never hap­pened, James jokes that Harry, who’s gam­bling ad­dic­tion has cost him money and his wife and daugh­ter, “is the near­est I get to play­ing James Bond”. Lead­ing ladies Eve (Si­enna Guil­lory) gives him the bracelet and says Si­enna, “She’s a ro­man­tic and a rebel. She hopes that it will help him un­cover the dark­ness that’s fallen over Lon­don.” There’s also Anna (Eve Best), Harry’s wife who “still has hope for them”, and Suri Cho­han (Amara Karan), Harry’s cop part­ner who “wants to be a bet­ter de­tec­tive but is sus­pi­cious as Harry keeps her in the dark,” says Amara. Lastly, there’s Lily-Anne Lau (Jing Lusi), the casino owner that Harry owes money to.
