Lucan (TV series)

Lucan (TV series)

The television drama Lucan aired on ABC from 1977 to 1978. The core cast was Kevin Brophy, John Randolph, and Don Gordon.

A 20-year old man (Brophy) spent the first 10 years of his life running wild in the forest after being raised by wolves. Lucan is taken to a research institute where he is taught the ways of human society. Lucan is befriended by a kind research doctor with whom he bonded during his journey to civilization. Lucan's continued freedom at the research center is put in peril once his doctor friend and mentor is hurt.

Unable to insure Lucan's well being at the institute the now barely civilized Wolf Boy is encouraged by his doctor friend to embrace his dream by striking out on his own in search of his identity. The short lived TV series chronicled the encounters, challenges and intriques Lucan faced interacting with people both good and bad using his new learned social graces and old Wolfen instincts.

Lucan did have special Wolfen skills that were invoked when he was made very angry. When upset to the point of violence his eyes glowed amber. He also had heightened senses of smell and hearing. In a few episodes he was able to call on his old wolf family/pack for help.

This series was based on a 1977 made-for-TV movie of the same name directed by David Greene.
