Lucan is the pilot film for a late 1970s TV adventure weekly. The story begins in 1967, when a group of Minnesota hunters come across a "wild boy" raised by wolves. After ten years in a research center, Lucan (Kevin Brophy) feels ready to enter the civilized world. On a quest for his human parents, Lucan comes across several people in distress; he uses his inbred wolfen skills to help them out. But as an escapee of the research plant, Lucan is subject to the persecution of bounty hunter Prentiss (Don Gordon). While it bears the usual TV-movie earmarks of too much exposition crammed into too little space, Lucan works well on its own merits. The Lucan series itself ran from September 1977 through December 1978.
