Dead Lucky is a crime-drama television series released on Sundance Now in 2018. The show is set in contemporary Sydney, Australia, and follows the story of a police detective called Grace Gibbs (played by Rachel Griffiths) and her unlikely ally, Charbel Fahd (portrayed by Mojean Aria), a young man who becomes a suspect in a murder investigation.

The series begins when Grace, who is struggling with her personal life and her place in the police force, is assigned to investigate a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. Meanwhile, Charbel is living in poverty and working hard to provide for his family when he is wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit. The two characters cross paths when Charbel becomes a suspect in one of Grace's cases.

As the investigation unfolds, Grace and Charbel must work together to find the real culprits and clear Charbel's name. However, things quickly become complicated as the duo discovers that the crimes they are investigating are connected to a larger web of corruption and violence in the city. Along the way, they face challenges both from within the police force and from the criminal underground.

One of the interesting elements of Dead Lucky is its portrayal of the grittier side of modern-day Sydney. While the city is usually depicted as a glamorous tourist destination, the show exposes the darker aspects of the city's underbelly. The depiction of the city's multicultural communities and their struggles is also a refreshing departure from the typically homogeneous cast of many crime dramas.

The show also benefits from strong performances from its lead actors. Rachel Griffiths brings her trademark intensity to her role as Grace, an experienced detective who finds herself in over her head. Mojean Aria, who was relatively unknown before the series, delivers a breakout performance as Charbel, a sympathetic and complex character who undergoes a great deal of personal growth over the course of the series.

In addition to these two primary characters, the show also features an ensemble cast of talented actors. Yoson An plays a character named Sid, a young cop who is partnered with Grace and serves as her comic relief. Ian Meadows plays a character named Detective Jim Orwell, one of Grace's colleagues who becomes suspicious of her involvement with Charbel. Other notable actors include Rhys Muldoon as Grace's ex-husband, and Mandy McElhinney as a wealthy socialite who is connected to several of the crimes being investigated.

Overall, Dead Lucky is an engaging and well-crafted crime drama that offers something fresh and different from the typical genre fare. The show's combination of strong performances, intricate plotting, and gritty realism make it a standout series that is sure to appeal to fans of crime dramas and character-driven stories alike.

Dead Lucky is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (4 episodes). The series first aired on September 20, 2018.
