Andy Serkis producing skills are coming to the small screen near you, as NBC has given out a pilot order for a medical drama titled Wolf.
Inspired by the books “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat” and “An Anthropologist on Mars” by Oliver Sacks. Per the official logline, the show “follows a revolutionary, larger-than-life neurologist and his team of interns as they explore the last great frontier, the human mind, while also grappling with their own relationships and mental health.”
Michael Grassi is attached to write and executive produce the pilot, with Lee Toland Krieger onboard to direct and executive produce. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Leigh London Redman executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate of Fabel Entertainment also executive produce along with Jonathan Cavendish, Andy Serkis, and Will Tennant of The Imaginarium. Warner Bros. Television is the studio.
