TNT is moving forward with series Raised by Wolves, an interplanetary TV series developed by Ridley Scott.

TNT is boosting its lineup of genre television with the help of the legendary Ridley Scott for a TV offering, called Raised by Wolves. The drama-driven Turner cable channel – which announced a creative partnership with Scott back in May 2017 – officially gave the other-planet-set TV project a straight-to-series order last fall.
The show is the creation of Aaron Guzikowski, writer of director Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal crime drama, Prisoners, Jason Momoa TV series The Red Road and the Rami Malek-starring remake of Papillon. Indeed, Guzikowski will serve as writer, executive producer and showrunner. Scott serves as an executive producer via Scott Free alongside David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, and Madhouse Entertainment’s Adam Kolbrenner and Robyn Meisinger.
Travis Fimmel is set to star on Raised by Wolves, in the latest development, as reported by Deadline. While it was revealed that he will play a character named Marcus, that is the extent of the divulged details. The Aussie actor, Fimmel, starred on History’s Vikings as protagonist Ragnar Lothbrok until a Season 4 shocker saw the character’s demise. After starring in the video game movie, Warcraft: The Beginning, he’s since been seen in films such as drama Lean on Pete and crime thriller Finding Steve McQueen. His pre-Vikings CV includes a co-starring run – opposite the late Patrick Swayze – on A&E’s The Beast and, years earlier, starring on The WB’s Tarzan.
Raised by Wolves will take place on a mysterious planet – virgin territory to humans – that’s in the early stages of colonization. However, the series will center on a pair of androids who are raising human children on the the burgeoning human home, living amongst colonists who clearly haven’t left their ideological baggage back on Earth, since they are being torn apart by religious differences. Consequently, the androids find themselves existing tenuously in the middle.
nterestingly, Scott will not only serve as executive producer, but will also occupy the director’s chair for Raised by Wolves for the first two episodes. This aspect marks a monumental occasion, since it will be the first time that the iconic, template-setting helmer of Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Prometheus and The Martian directs for television. As Scott explained in the project's October 2017 statement:
“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?” He adds, “Given TNT’s impressive run of bold, quality programming, this feels like exactly the right home for this kind of ambitious television.”
Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT, hints female attributes among the android characters, expressing in a statement:
“Ridley Scott is simply the best there is in the sci-fi genre. 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.”
