Catlin Moran’s “Raised by Wolves’ gets full series.

by | Feb 4, 2014 | All, TV News

Channel 4 today announces a full series order of brand new comedy RAISED BY WOLVES, written by bestselling author and award winning columnist Caitlin Moran, with her sister Caroline Moran.


Set on a Wolverhampton council estate, RAISED BY WOLVES is a modern day re-imagining of Caitlin and Caroline’s childhood – loads of kids, no money, home-schooled, and educating themselves on mankind’s great bounty of books, films, TV and pop music.

Produced by Big Talk Productions, a pilot was screened as part of Channel 4’s 4Funnies season last year starred Rebekah Staton (Pulling), Philip Jackson (Poirot) and Helen Monks (The Archers) alongside newcomers Alexa Davies, Molly Risker,  Caden Ellis Wall, Lucie Brown and Kaine Zajaz.

RAISED BY WOLVES (6 x 30) will go into production later this year for broadcast in 2015. The series was commissioned by Fiona McDermott and will be executive produced by Big Talk Chief Executive, Kenton Allen and Caroline Leddy (Inbetweeners).

Caitlin Moran said;  “It was foretold in ancient legend that when two sisters from a council-estate in Wolverhampton – one brunette and over-sharey, one ginger and angry – would, one day, write a sit-com for Channel 4, and finally popularise the local sayings of ‘To be fair,’ ‘I don’t reckon’, ‘Alright babba’ and ‘Ahhhhhh, binners’.” That day has now come. We now go and eat faggots and peas, to celebrate.”

Kenton Allen, added: “Caitlin and Caroline have a truly original comic voice and I’m delighted Channel 4 are giving them the chance to entertain the world with the joys of unconventional life in Wolverhampton. As a boy from Birmingham I predict the long overdue Midlands renaissance starts as soon as we’ve all had a nice cup of tea. ”
