…. a New TNT Sci-Fi Series

"If ever something marked the modern superiority of television over the movies, it's the arrival of Ridley Scott. Scott has directed some of the most iconic movies of all time (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) and now, for the first time, he'll direct a TV show.

Scott will make his TV directorial debut on a new TNT show called Raised by Wolves which, in true Scott fashion, is a high-concept sci-fi show. According to a press release, Raised by Wolves is about "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." TNT just gave the show a straight to series order, meaning you will see it on the air in the future. And while it's unclear just how many episodes Scott is directing, it'll definitely be more than one and there's even a outside chance he could do all of them. He'll be working alongside showrunner Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote Prisoners…."

Too many sci-fi shows get away from the coolness of all the sci-fi, and end up being about human factions fighting each other on a sci-fi world that looks like Vancouver or Morocco. I'm not sure I want another one.

And copy the looks and style of 'Star Trek' or 'Firefly,' then recycle the same storylines from those shows.

Will it be a comedy? I can imagine a couple of snarky tech-savvy pre-teens hacking their video game systems to take control of their guardians and playing "Rock'em-Sock'em-Androids". (The kids would be the wolves… ;-)

Sounds like the plot is an excuse for Hollyweird types to preach about the evils of being white, male, and middle class.
