    Written by Caitlin with her sister Caroline, Raised by Wolves is a modern re-imagining of the Moran's childhood in Wolverhampton.


    Sisters Germaine, Aretha, Yoko, Mariah and baby Cher live with their brother Wyatt and their mother Della on a Wolverhampton council estate.

    Germaine is in love with local lout Lee Rind, and dreams of a Jane Austen-style romance. Aretha, with her love of Jung and Barack Obama, has a more realistic outlook. Constantly at loggerheads yet covering one another's backs, the sisters are trying to live the dream - while all Della wants them to do is mow the lawn.

    The pilot aired on Channel 4 on the 23rd December 2013.

    There’s plenty here to make a successful series out of. Here’s hoping the powers that be agree. Lisa-Marie Ferla

    it’s gleefully profane and full of brittle energy – we’d welcome a series Phil Harrison

    I enjoyed the precociousness of this pilot and hope for a full series from the Moran sisters Stuart Jeffries

    Well, this was brilliant... riotous good fun Ellen E Jones
    The Independent

    affectionate, eccentric and very funny sitcom about teenage girls... a full series must surely follow Jane Simon
    The Mirror

    The script is full to bursting with ideas and atmospheres, as all sorts of concentrated capsules bump up against each other... packed with strong women, clearly-drawn, weird and well performed
