We have seen plenty of movies and series with humans trying to raise/educate newer androids or artificial intelligence. This is the first time that I can remember seeing it done in reverse. HBO Max has a new series coming in September called Raised By Wolves that explores just that. Check out the trailer:
The first two episodes of the series are directed by Ridley Scott. This will be his television directorial debut in the U.S., and will have 10 episodes in total. The story, “centers on 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 (A Conspiracy of Faith, A Horrible Woman), Abubakar Salim (Fortitude, Jamestown), Winta McGrath (Aloft, Red Dog: True Blue), Niamh Algar (The Virtues, Calm With Horses), Jordan Loughran (The Infiltrator, Emerald City), Matias Varela (Narcos, Point Break), Felix Jamieson (Game of Thrones, The Ghost), Ethan Hazzard (The Long Song, Damned), Aasiya Shah (Call the Midwife, Unforgotten) Ivy Wong (Star Wars: Rogue One, Maleficent 2) and Travis Fimmel (Vikings).
Joining Ridley Scott are fellow Scott Free Productions executive producers David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle), Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners) and Mark Huffam (The Martian). The series is written and created by Aaron Guzikowski.
Raised By Wolves premieres September 3rd on HBO Max.
