What would you do if you won the lottery? How would it change your life?

Follow a group of seven gas station employees in Queens, New York, who have been chipping into a lottery pool for years, never thinking they'd actually win.

They need to be careful what they wish for, because while the money could solve problems for each of them, it will forever change the close-knit bonds these friends have formed, in Lucky 7.

Nestled in the culturally diverse neighbourhood of Astoria, the Gold Star Gas N' Shop is home to a surrogate family of co-workers whose lives will be transformed by an unexpected lottery win. Aside from the money, relationships will change as the trust between two brothers will be uprooted, budding romances will develop and secrets will come to the surface.

Matt Korzak (Matt Long) could get his very pregnant girlfriend, Mary Lavecchia (Christine Evangelista), and their other child out of his mother's house with some desperately needed cash.

Matt's brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt and pursue the huge crush he has on co-worker Samira Lashari (Summer Bishil).

Samira, a second-generation Pakistani immigrant and a talented musician, could finally afford to go to her dream school, Juilliard.

Denise Dibinksy (Lorraine Bruce), the tender-hearted Gold Star cashier, is struggling to lose weight and regain her former glory, but the winnings could provide an opportunity for her to rebuild her crumbling marriage.

Leanne Maxwell (Anastasia Phillips), a young single mother, will try to keep her past hidden despite the spotlight the lottery win puts on her.

Bob Harris (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store's manager and quite possibly the nicest man in the world, wants to buy the Gold Star and make it into the perfect workplace he always imagined.

And cheerful and charming Antonio Clemente (Luis Antonio Ramos) will discover ways to capitalize on the group's win in order to give his wife, Bianca (Alex Castillo), and their three kids a whole new life.

Now that their circumstances have changed, the "Lucky 7" will need to overcome obstacles, reach down deep to examine their values and find out who they really are if they're to enjoy their newfound wealth.

You'd think they have millions of reasons to celebrate - but will they?

Lucky 7 stars Summer Bishil (Towelhead) as Samira Lashari, Lorraine Bruce (Eden Lake) as Denise Dibinksy, Alex Castillo as Bianca Clemente, Christine Evangelista as Mary Lavecchia, Stephen Louis Grush (Detroit 1-8-7) as Nicky Korzak, Matt Long (Private Practice) as Matt Korzak, Anastasia Phillips (Stoked) as Leanne Maxwell, Luis Antonio Ramos (The Ruins) as Antonio Clemente and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (The Wire) as Bob Harris.

Lucky 7, based on the British hit The Syndicate, was written by David Zabel (ER, Detroit 1-8-7) and Jason Richman (Detroit 1-8-7) and is executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Zabel and Richman. The pilot was directed by Paul McGuigan.

Lucky 7 is produced by ABC Studios and Amblin Television.
