Stan Lee’s Lucky Man filmed in London locations
Drama series Stan Lee’s Lucky Man has returned to film a second series in London.
Lucky Man stars James Nesbitt as a washed-up murder detective in the English capital who is given the power to control luck.
“One of the great things that the cast, crew and producers have done is introduce audiences to places they may not be familiar with [in London],” said Gill Champion, co-executive producer on Lucky Man and co-founder – with Stan Lee and Arthur Lieberman – of POW! Entertainment.
“I’d been to London in the past and I’d been to all the tourist places that one does when you visit, but this opened up a whole new world – not just for me but for a lot of other people too.”
Location filming took place in half a dozen different London boroughs, from Haringey and Islington in the north of the city down to Southwark and Lambeth in the south.
“Everyone living or working in London has a sense of the city as an extraordinary mix of stories, histories, cultures and personalities,” said Adrian Wootton, chief executive of Film London and the British Film Commission.
“This – along with the diversity of talent, skills and expertise of those working here – contributes enormously to its success as a destination for film and TV, and I’m delighted that the team behind Lucky Man have so deftly tapped into what makes the city tick.”
Last month the mayor of London Sadiq Khan announced his intention to make the city the most film-friendly in the world, with plans underway to develop a new studio facility in Dagenham that would be the biggest in London.
