Lucky Hank Story

The story of “Lucky Hank” is offered in first person through the first hand perspective of William Henry Devereaux Jr. (Odenkirk), who works as a chairman for Railton College which is a struggling Pennsylvania school located along the “rust belt” that serves as the background for many of Russo’s novels. Caught in the throes of a mid-life crisis, Devereaux’s life begins to spiral out of control due to his increasingly erratic behavior, leading to some tough choices for himself and for his wife Lily (Mireille Enos). As with all adaptations, there’s no telling what will remain the same and what might be changed from Richard Russo’s source material. There is no doubt that fans of “Straight Man” will be eagerly awaiting the release of “Lucky Hank” to see how the story translates to the small screen.
