A trailer and key art for HBO Max and Ridley Scott's RAISED BY WOLVES has huffed and puffed its way online.

Marking Ridley Scott's debut as a director for an American television series, RAISED BY WOLVES centers on 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 highly-anticipated series, of which Scott directed the first two (of ten) episodes, will debut on September 3rd on HBO Max.

The cast includes Amanda Collin (A Conspiracy of Faith, A Horrible Woman), Abubakar Salim (Fortitude, Jamestown), Winta McGrath (Aloft, Red Dog: True Blue), Niamh Algar (The Virtues, Calm With Horses), Jordan Loughran (The Infiltrator, Emerald City), Matias Varela (Narcos, Point Break), Felix Jamieson (Game of Thrones, The Ghost), Ethan Hazzard (The Long Song, Damned), Aasiya Shah (Call the Midwife, Unforgotten) Ivy Wong (Star Wars: Rogue One, Maleficent 2) and Travis Fimmel (Vikings).

The series is produced by Scott's Scott Free Productions, with Scott, writer and creator Aaron Guzikowski, David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle), Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners) and Mark Huffam (The Martian) acting as executive producers.

Whoa! How have I not heard about this show until this very moment? Visually, this show looks to be ticking several of my boxes, and damn you, Ridley, you must know that I'm a sucker for dark fairy tales. I swear, every time I think that I can get away with not subscribing to HBO Max, they go ahead and drop another must-see film or series in my lap. How dare you, HBO Max. Who's going to pay my cable bill?
