Animal Kingdom is a bold drama based on David Michod’s film of the same name. The TV show stars Emmy® and Tony® winner Ellen Barkin (Sea of LoveThis Boy’s LifeOceans 13), Scott Speedman (The StrangersThe Vow), Shawn Hatosy(SouthlandReckless), Ben Robson(Vikings,Dracula: The Dark Prince), Jake Weary (Pretty Little LiarsIt Follows), Finn Cole (Peaky BlindersAn Inspector Calls), Daniella Alonso (Revolution) and Molly Gordon (Love the Coopers, Ithaca).

The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua “J” Cody (Cole), who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch Janine “Smurf” Cody (Barkin) and her right-hand Baz (Speedman), who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope (Hatosy), the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig (Robson), the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran (Weary), the troubled, suspicious “baby” of the family. Also prominent are Nicky (Gordon), J’s steady girlfriend, and Catherine (Alonso), Baz’s de facto wife and the mother of their 3-year-old daughter, Lena.

It isn’t long before Josh is pulled into the family’s life of indulgence and excess, but he soon discovers that it’s all being funded by criminal activities. Joining the family comes with more danger and excitement than he might be ready to handle.

Animal Kingdom is produced by John Wells Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, with Emmy® winner John Wells (TNT’s Southland, ER, The West Wing, Shameless) andJonathan Lisco(TNT’s Southland, Halt and Catch Fire, Damages, NYPD Blue) serving as executive producers of the series. Wells directed the pilot from a script by Lisco. Andrew Stearn (TNT’sSouthland, Shameless) also executive-produced the pilot. The project is inspired by the award-winning feature film produced by Liz Watts and written & directed by David Michôd, who will also serve as executive producers on the series.
