In what is an instant hit for the legendary Hollywood director in his first full TV series, Turner's TNT cable network has greenlit straight to series Ridley Scott’s Raised By Wolves serialised sci-fi drama.

TURNER 9Oct2018jpgRaised by Wolves centres upon two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

The director of The Martian, Blade Runner, Alien: Covenant is working with acclaimed writer Aaron Guzikowski who will serve as showrunner as well as a writer. The series is being produced by Scott's Scott Free Productions in association with Turner's Studio T and Madhouse Entertainment, with Scott, Guzikowski, David W. Zucker and Jordan Sheehan and Madhouse Entertainment's Adam Kolbrenner and Robyn Meisinger serving as executive producers. The International rights to the series will be distributed through Turner International.

“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?” Scott remarked. “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 for 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.”
