Now this looks like one to place on the must see list.
The trailer has arrived for Raised by Wolves, an exciting HBO Max sci-fi series executive produced by Ridley Scott. Created by Aaron Guzikowski, writer of Denis Villeneuve’s fantastic 2013 thriller Prisoners, the series follows two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.
The cast includes Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim as the androids (mother and father, respectively) and Aussie actor Travis Fimmel, perhaps best known for playing Ragnar Lothbrok in History’s Vikings.
Scott also directed the first two episodes of the series, marking his first directing of television since 1969, when he helmed an episode of British series Mogul. This looks like visually stunning, thematically rich, ultra-heady sci-fi. Can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Raised by Wolves is scheduled to premiere on HBO Max on September 3.
