Strange Luck is an American television series that aired on FOX, created by Karl Schaefer and starring D. B. Sweeney in the role of Chance Harper, a freelance photographer afflicted with a bizarre tendency to always be in the wrong place at the right time. As Chance himself says, "If I go to a restaurant, somebody chokes. If I walk into a bank, it gets robbed." Harper's strange luck began when, as a small child, he was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed everyone else aboard, including his mother and sister.

The series aired on Fox from 1995 to 1996. A total of seventeen episodes were produced before the show was canceled due to low ratings. Reruns were shown briefly on the Sci Fi Channel in 1997.

The episode "Brothers Grim" ends with Chance being referred to an FBI agent named Fox Mulder. Whether this places Strange Luck in the same "universe" as the Fox series The X-Files (in which Mulder is the lead character) is unknown.
