USA Network has announced a pilot pick-up for Brooklyn Animal Control, and adaptation of the IDW Publishing comic book, which is created by J.T. Petty (Splinter Cell). Petty will write and executive produce alongside David S. Goyer (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), David Alpert (The Walking Dead) and IDW’s David Ozer and Ted Adanms.
“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.”
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.
