USA Network announced a pilot pick-up for BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL. The project is written and executive produced by JT Petty (â€œSplinter Cellâ€). David S. Goyer (â€œBatman v Supermanâ€), Circle of Confusionâ€™s Rick Jacobs (â€œSpare Partsâ€) and David Alpert (â€œWalking Deadâ€), and IDW Entertainmentâ€™s David Ozer and Ted Adams (â€œ30 Days of Nightâ€), will also executive produce. BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is based on the IDW Publishing comic book created by Petty and is a co-production with Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment.
â€œFans of the comic book know that BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL is a thriller anchored inside the world of New York organized crime families,â€ said Jackie de Crinis, Executive Vice President Original Programming, â€œAt its core, it is a family drama, albeit an unconventional one.â€
BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the cityâ€™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.
In addition, USA Network recently announced a pilot pick-up for POOR RICHARDâ€™S ALMANACK, a co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, the project is from executive producer Jim Danger Gray (â€œOrange is the New Blackâ€) and consulting producer Miguel Sapochnik (â€œGame of Thronesâ€). Previously announced pick-ups also include the Universal Cable Production dramas FALLING WATER from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (â€œThe Walking Deadâ€) of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters (â€œ2 Gunsâ€) and the late Emmy Award-winner Henry Bromell (â€œHomelandâ€), and PARADISE PICTURES from executive producer Aaron Korsh (SUITS) and Rick Muirragui (SUITS).
