It follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the New York Police Department that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens: werewolves.

Zovatto will portray Donovan Crean, an unemployed drunk and car thief in debt to all the wrong people whose world turns upside down with the startling revelation that his father, Brooklyn Animal Control officer John Crean (Stephen Graham), manages werewolves for a living. Accustomed to threats of jail time and broken knees, Donovan suddenly has to deal with the bewildering prospect of ending up gristle in a pile of werewolf scat.

Zovatto’s credits include appearances on Revenge and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as roles in the films Laggies and It Follows.
