USA Network announced they have picked up a pilot for IDW Publishing’s series Brooklyn Animal Control. The pilot is being written and executive produced by JT Petty (“Splinter Cell”). David S. Goyer (“Batman v Superman”), Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs (“Spare Parts”) and David Alpert (“Walking Dead”), and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams (“30 Days of Night”), will also executive produce. Brooklyn Animal Control was originally created by JT Petty.
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.
“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.”
