A new TV series for Lucky Luke

Lucky Luke, the legendary comic cowboy created in 1946 by Morris, is ready to find new life on the small screen.

Variety magazine has recently announced that Federation Entertainment has entered into an agreement with Un pour Tous Productions to develop and produce a live TV series dedicated to the lone gunslinger of the American Wild West. The protagonist will be the popular French actor Michael Youn, who will also have the role of director and will be part of the creative and production team.

Michael Youn, one of France’s most famous comedy actors and directors, said: “As a huge comic book fan, I’m thrilled to be part of this adventure and can’t wait to share it with the public.”

Few details are known about the series at the moment, but it has been confirmed that it will bring back many historical characters from the comic, including the Dalton, Calamity Jane, Pat Poker and the cute dog Rantanplan.
