TNT Gives Series Order to Drama 'Raised by Wolves' from Ridley Scott

TNT has today given a series order to the original drama series Raised by Wolves with Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) set to direct. 

The drama focuses on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious, virgin planet. As the colony of humans divides over religious differences, the androids learn controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous, difficult job.

Aaron Guzikowski (The Red Road) created the drama. He executive produces with Scott, David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, Adam Kolbrenner and Robyn Meisinger. Studio T, Scott Free Productions and Madhouse Entertainment will produce.

"I'm always searching for new frontiers in the sci-fi genre and have found a true original in Raised by Wolves - a wholly distinct and imaginative world, full of characters struggling with existential questions: What makes us human? What constitutes a family? And what if we could start over again and erase the mess we've made of our planet? Would we survive? Would we do better?" said Scott. "Given TNT's impressive run of bold, quality programming, this feels like exactly the right home for this kind of ambitious television."

"Ridley Scott is simply the best there is in the sci-fi genre," added Sarah Aubrey, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, TNT. "Besides directing some of the most important sci-fi films of all-time, Ridley has created iconic characters from Alien's Ripley to Prometheus' Elizabeth Shaw. We're thrilled to have Ridley do the same for us as we look forward to his vision of Aaron's complex and futuristic Mother. It's incredibly rare to be able to make television that both challenges one's intellect and also thrills the excited fangirl side - Raised by Wolves is that rare show that does both."
