The sci-fi series has found a new home
Raised by Wolves, a sci-fi series from Ridley Scott, has found a new home on the direct-to-consumer platform, HBO Max.
The 10-episode drama, starring Warcraft and Vikings actor Travis Fimmel was originally set up at TNT, with a straight-to-series order. Additionally, HBO Max’s head of original content Sarah Aubrey, who ordered Raised by Wolves while working as lead on original series for TNT, brought with her some of her development at the network.
Scott produces and makes his TV directorial debut on the series, which was created by Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) who also serves as writer and showrunner.
Aubrey said of the project, “The breathtaking worlds, compelling characters and intricate storylines that Ridley, Aaron and team have created for this project are mesmerizing.”
Raised by Wolves centres around two androids who are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the expanding colony of humans threatens to tear themselves apart through religious differences, the androids begin to learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a difficult and dangerous task.
Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO, said of the series’ move “As we strive to set a high creative bar for HBO Max, there’s no better person to set that bar than Ridley Scott as he delivers his first season of yet another incredible vision realized.”
As well as Fimmel, the cast includes Amanda Collin, Abubakar Salim, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Jordan Loughran, Aasiya Shah, and Ivy Wong.
