NEWS PROVIDED BY
NEW YORK - February 15, 2023 - AMC Networks announced today that Emmy(R)-nominees Bob Odenkirk and Mireille Enos' highly anticipated next series Lucky Hank will debut across four of its linear networks with BBC AMERICA, IFC and SundanceTV joining AMC and AMC+ for a multi-network premiere event on Sunday, March 19 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The news coincides with the release of the series' first full-length trailer; linked here. The linear debut of Lucky Hank follows the series' recently announced world premiere at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin on Saturday, March 11.
Lucky Hank is a mid-life crisis tale set at Railton College, told in the first person by William Henry "Hank" Devereaux, Jr. (Odenkirk, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad), the unlikely chairman of the English department in a badly underfunded college in a working-class American town. Hank's discontent is rooted in unresolved issues with his father, a mediocre and entitled student body, and in the fact that his department is more savagely divided than the Balkans. Enos (Hanna, The Killing) stars as Lily Devereaux, the emotionally grounded, unflappable wife of Hank and the Vice Principal of the local high school in rural Pennsylvania where they live. As Hank's life starts to unravel, Lily begins to question the path she's on and the choices she's made.
Additional series regulars include (alphabetically): Sara Amini, Diedrich Bader, Suzanne Cryer, Olivia Scott Welch and Cedric Yarbrough with guest stars (alphabetically): Alvina August, Tom Bower, Shannon DeVido, Chris Diamantopoulos, Lilah Fitzgerald, Jackson Kelly, Arthur Keng, Kyle Maclachlan, Oscar Nuñez and more.
Aaron Zelman and Paul Lieberstein, who adapted the project from the novel "Straight Man" by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo, serve as co-showrunners as well as executive producers, along with Odenkirk, Peter Farrelly, who also serves as director, Mark Johnson, Russo, Naomi Odenkirk, Marc Provissiero and Jessica Held. The series is produced by AMC Studios with partners Sony Pictures' Television TriStar TV and Johnson's Gran Via.
