TV show description:      
This dramatic series follows a group of seven close-knit employees of the Gold Star Gas N’ Shop in Queens, New York. They’ve been chipping into a lottery pool for years, never thinking they’d actually win — but then, they do. While the money may or may not solve all of their individual problems, it will certainly change their friendships forever.

Bob Harris (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) is the manager, the service station’s unofficial patriarch for 25 years, and possibly the nicest man in the world. He wants to buy the Gold Star and turn it into the perfect workplace he’s always imagined.

Matt Korzak (Matt Long) is the station’s dependable and well-meaning assistant manager. He’s worked there since high school and carries the burdens of every working parent as he struggles to take care of his child and Mary Lavecchia (Christine Evangelista), his demanding and very pregnant longtime girlfriend. Feeling overwhelmed from financial strains, Matt takes desperate measures to give his family the life they deserve.

Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush) is Matt’s reckless yet slyly charming younger brother. He’s always been a bit of a screw-up and even spent some time in prison. He’s now out on parole and trying to better himself, employed as an assistant mechanic at Gold Star (thanks to Matt). Nicky is working to stick to the straight and narrow path and finds himself falling for a co-worker who’ll help him stay there, Samira. Unfortunately, not all of Nicky’s debts have been paid.

Samira Lashari (Summer Bishil) is a young store clerk who emigrated from Pakistan as a child with her family. She grew up American but has a foot firmly stuck in traditional values. Her parents have very strong ideas about the life she should be living — including the man she should marry — but Samira is intent on forging her own path, which means pursuing her dream of being a musician.

Denise Dibinksy (Lorraine Bruce) is the tender-hearted cashier who’s always optimistic and sometimes superstitious. She loves talking to customers and never hesitates to help others. Denise is struggling to lose weight in hopes of rebuilding her crumbling 20 year relationship with her husband.

Antonio Clemente (Luis Antonio Ramos) is the chief mechanic and is always cheerful. He’s happily married to Bianca (Alex Castillo) with three children. Though he works hard, he always comes up short each month.

Leanne Maxwell (Anastasia Phillips) is a young single mother who works the deli counter. She tends to keep to herself and is a bit of a mystery but still considers her co-workers her second family. She has a crush on Matt and also struggles to keep her past where it belongs.

    I wish you wouldn’t have cancelled “Lucky Seven”. It was a show with a lot of potential. How could you tell how it was going to be reviewed by only two episodes. And seriously who was in charge of programming, putting it up against “Sons of Anarchy”, and “NCIS”? Those shows have a helluva following. Fortunately for me, I have “Catch Up” on “On Demand” to watch the shows I like with time conflicts. And so do many other people. Can’t you just find another time slot? Do you or are you able to check the viewership from people who watch on “Catch Up”? It would be nice to bring it back.
    There are evenings such as Friday and Saturday where it wouldn’t be such a conflict. Give it a chance please.

    I loved this show, the first episode kept me wanting more. Please bring it back. 2 episodes just wasn’t enough, put it on Friday night if you have to.

    What is wrong with you??????? Leave the good shows on and get rid of the junk. Lucky 7 was a great show. I hope another network picks it up and everyone watches it instead of your network.

    I missed it this week and started looking for it, and found these cancelled notices. two times is not enough. I have been talking up a few of the new shows and had just gotten some people to watch Luky 7 and the Goldbergs. Bring it back for at least two months.

    I liked this show and looked forward to watching it. It is a nice change to finally get to watch something completely different. I dont think this show was given enough time. each episode was better than the one before it, and I couldnt wait to see the next one. ABC did the same thing with Shark Tank and I guess enough people complained and they brought it back ! Please bring back Lucky 7 too !

    • margaret wagner says

      I just started watching shark tank so that shows that some us wake up later than others. Lucky seven is a wonderful show with potential to keep the viewer interested with the interesting stories of the various winners. I watched it because it was on after the Goldbergs and that other horrible show, Trophy Wives. you can take that one off.

    Why, only give a show two episodes? ABC has so much questionable series that Luck 7, should have been given a chance. Two episodes is a joke. Other networks should look at there lineup’s that should be cancelled, (i.e. Good Wife, Sherlock Holmes, Scandel), the list is endless. Lucky 7, was great.
