Lucan's Pilot and Series Instrumental Themes

Image
"Lucan's Theme" was arranged by composer Fred Karlin and used in the Pilot Movie. The music was sentimental and melancholy, representing how Lucan was all alone in the world. He'd lost the closest man to a father in death and wanted to find his real parents and the answers to why he was abandoned.

When the fugitive concepts were added, the next ten episodes featured more pulse-pounding action-oriented "chase" music by composer JJ Johnson.

Lucan: Different Opening Narrations

What's it like to start at the top?
"Wonderful, absolutely wonderful," enthuses Kevin, just two years out of college. "I thought maybe I should just get out and run a dairy farm in Wisconsin. And then along came LUCAN and suddenly my life did a 180-degree turn. Instead of everything being down, everything was up."
In his role as LUCAN, Kevin portrays a young man in search of his roots. He was left abandoned as an infant, for reasons unknown to LUCAN, and was raised by wolves in the northern wilds.
