Clea DuVall has joined the cast of USA Network’s drama pilot Brooklyn Animal Control, based on the IDW Publishing comic created by JT Petty.
Written and executive produced by Petty, Brooklyn Animal Control 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. It centers on John Crean (Stephen Graham), an officer of the Brooklyn Animal Control who is well-acquainted with the small community of werewolves to which he plays cop, counselor, and diplomat. When backed against a wall, he will buck tradition and risk everything to protect his miscreant son.
Gersh-repped DuVall will play Madeleine Holmlund. Current Den Mother Vilhelmiina’s (Jane Alexander) eldest daughter, Madeleine is heir apparent to lead her people. But when challenged for dominance by her uncle Theo (James Callis), Madeleine’s forced to finally immerse herself in the violent underworld politics of the city.
DuVall recently had guest-starring roles in Better Call Saul, American Horror Story, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles and Newsroom. Film credits include Argo, 21 Grams and Passengers. DuVall also just directed feature The Intervention.
Brooklyn Animal Control is co-produced by Universal Cable Prods and IDW Entertainment.
