Brooklyn Animal Control is a little-known comic from IDW that's garnered a small following. USA Network plans to capitalize on that following with the pick-up of a pilot, written and executive produced by JT Petty. David S. Goyer, Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs and David Alpert and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams, will also executive produce. Brooklyn Animal Control is based on the IDW Publishing comic book created by Petty and is a co-production with Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment.
“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.
