USA network’s pilot “Brooklyn Animal Control” has caught Clea DuVall.
DuVall (“Argo,” “Better Call Saul”) will play Madeleine Holmlund, the eldest daughter of Jane Alexander’s Vilhelmiina Tolk and heir apparent to lead her people. When she is challenged for dominance by her uncle Theo (James Callis), Madeleine is forced to finally immerse herself in the violent underworld politics of the city.
The show 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.
“Brooklyn Animal Control” is written and executive produced by JT Petty and is based on his IDW Publishing comic book. A co-production with Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment, the pilot’s exec producers are David S. Goyer (“Batman v Superman”), Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs (“Mr. Right”) and David Alpert (“The Walking Dead”), and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams (“30 Days of Night”). Brian Kirk (“Game of Thrones”) will direct the pilot and will also executive produce.
DuVall is repped by the Gersh Agency.
