Caitlin Moran's Raised by Wolves: Two clips from new Channel 4 comedy

By
Channel 4 has unveiled two clips from its brand new comedy Raised by Wolves.

Caitlin Moran has co-written the sitcom with sister Caroline, which is a modern day fictionalised version of their real childhood.


Raised by Wolves follows a group of six siblings and their mother living on a Wolverhampton council estate. Despite not attending school, the family are somehow intellectual and full of wit.

The female children are all named after strong women - Germaine, Aretha, Yoko, Mariah and baby Cher - while brother Wyatt is named after Kevin Costner's character Wyatt Earp.

Germaine is in love with local buffoon Lee Bacon, while Aretha studies Carl Jung and Barack Obama. The pair are constantly at odds but look out for one another.


Rebekah Staton (Spy, Pulling), Philip Jackson (Poirot) and Helen Monks (The Archers) are among the cast. Newcomers Alexa Davies, Molly Risker, Caden Ellis Wall, Lucie Brown and Kaine Zajaz will also star.

The series is produced by Caroline Norris and directed by Ian Fitzgibbon.

Raised by Wolves airs tonight (December 23) at 10.50pm on Channel 4.
