Werewolf comic Brooklyn Animal Control picked up by USA Network


USA Network announced a pilot pick-up for Brooklyn Animal Control, based on the IDW Publishing comic book of the same name. The comic's creator, JT Petty (THE BURROWERS) will write the pilot and executive produce.

BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens -- werewolves.  Delving into the lives of both the Case Officers, and the secretive, highly insular Kveld-Ulf, a community of werewolves living deep in the borough, BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL will examine city politics, immigrant communities, and families divided by ambition, secrecy, and tradition.

 David S. Goyer (BATMAN V SUPERMAN), Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs and David Alpert (The Walking Dead), and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams (30 Days of Night), will also executive produce.

“Fans of the comic book know that BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is a thriller anchored inside the world of New York organized crime families,” said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original Programming, “At its core, it is a family drama, albeit an unconventional one.”

No word yet on when we can expect Brooklyn Animal Control to go before cameras.
