We are thrilled to announce that our Abubakar Salim will play the lead role of ‘Father’ in Ridley Scott’s TV Debut – Raised By Wolves.

Raised By Wolves is produced by Ridley Scott’s company Scott Free for TNT and Ridley shall direct the first two episodes of the 10 part series. It focuses on two androids – Father (played by Abubakar) and Mother – tasked with raising human children on a mysterious planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

Father is an android whose devotion to his human children is matched only by his devotion to Mother. He is a considerably less complex model than Mother, but thanks to his wisdom and patience, he is no less important to the family’s survival. Like many human fathers, Father wants to be funny — especially in the eyes of Mother — but it’s a skill he often struggles with. What he is good at is always being there when you need him.
