‘Animal Kingdom’ Series in the Works for Showtime

ALTAnimal Kingdom, a 2010 indie drama from Australia, is being adapted into a series for Showtime.

The series is being described as “a crime drama exploring the tense battle between a criminal family and the police, and the ordinary lives caught in the middle.”

Uber-producer John Wells — whose hits include ER and The West Wing — will assume his usual behind-the-scenes position alongside writer/producer Jonathan Lisco (NYPD Blue, Southland).

The film starred Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce and Jackie Weaver, who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
