Raised by Wolves
Written by Caitlin and Caroline Moran, 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.
packed with ideas, atmospheres and strong women... Ian Fitzgibbon’s direction [strikes] a good balance between the freedom and the claustrophobia of the environment Alex Hardy
