Ridley Scott is a huge name in cinema, the director behind hugely influential movies like Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise and Gladiator. Now, he’s taking the lead of other prominent directors like David Lynch and David Fincher and getting into the TV game. It’s where all the cool stuff is happening nowadays, after all.
According to The A.V. Club, Scott will direct and produce a new TNT show called Raised By Wolves. It’s set in the future, on a distant planet colonized by man. Two androids are charged with raising human children, but as the humans grow up and splinter into different religious groups, the androids must decide how and whether they want to shape the beliefs of the feuding flash bags they raised.
The premise recalls Blade Runner, kind of, because it’s about how robot people interact with actual people, but beyond that it’s new territory. In a statement, Scott said the show would explore whether humanity “could start over again and erase the mess we’ve made of our planet.” Find out if we’ve got it in us sometime in 2019…or 2020; they’ll get around to it eventually.
We should mention that while Scott is involved, Raised By Wolves is the brainchild of Aaron Guzikowski, who will serve as showrunner. Guzikowski’s biggest claim to fame is probably writing the script for Prisoners, a 2007 thriller from director Denis Villeneuve. And Villeneuve went on to direct Blade Runner 2049, and just like that everything comes full circle.
