Juno writer Diablo Cody has teamed with Berlanti Prods. for Raised by Wolves, an adaptation of the 2015 U.K. comedy series, which has landed at ABC with a script commitment plus penalty.

Written by Cody, Raised by Wolves centers on Sheila Gable, a single parent and one tough mother. Joining Sheila are her dad and five offbeat kids as they try to survive on a shoestring budget in a (not) beautiful Midwestern town.

The half-hour, single-camera Raised by Wolfs is part of a push into comedy for Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Prods., which has six drama series on the air. It is expected to be the first of several half-hour projects taken out this year by the Warner Bros. TV-based company, which Berlanti runs with president Sarah Schechter.

It was Schechter who fell in love with the Channel 4 series Raised by Wolves, which was created and written by popular British columnist and author Caitlin Moran and her sister Caroline based on their childhood experience. (you can watch a trailer for the first of the show’s two seasons below.)

As she began chasing the rights to the series, Schechter reached out to Cody about joining the project as a producer as Schechter felt that Caitlin Moran shared a similar sensibility with the Oscar winner and the show featured the type of central characters Cody knows and does very well — smart teenagers and a strong mother. Not only did Cody come on board, she offered to write the adaptation. After securing the U.S. rights from U.K. producer Big Talk in a competitive situation, Berlanti Prods. went on to develop the project internally, with Cody writing a pilot script, tapping into her Midwest upbringing to transplant the comedy from the British Midlands to middle America. Caitlin Moran was involved in the process, giving notes.
