TRAILER: English subtitled above - without subtitles below.
We are raising money for developing the concept and scriptwriting. For the ongoing work with developing the characters multidimensionally and for researching the specific cases in the episodes. What we have is a strong base for a killer story and characters.
"The Wolves" (Dom jävlarna ska skjutas) is an action-packed drama with black comedy influences - about a group of women who want justice in society.
The story takes off with the 65-years old Defense Attorney Victoria (Stina Ekblad) who have seen hell of a lot of shit in her days - and sometimes even defended people that she knew ought to be tried. She's just doing her job, but every day that goes by she despises her profession, herself and the legal system more and more. At last the day comes when she retires, and when she gets that infamous gold watch she finally realizes how superficially controlled this world is. She puts on the watch, because it 's time for a change . And that time is now.
She gathers women from all parts of society that are potential heroes a.k.a "The Wolves" ('Vargarna'). And like Marla Singer in Fight Club she visits various help groups for women who have experienced violence or injustice. Women with different backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life. Through these groups she headhunts the most skillful, the most interesting, the most vulnerable and those who appear to have the potential to be passionate about the same things as her. She forms a secret society that during the course of the series will serve as a sounding board for Victoria's vision and goals. But it will also act as a catalyst to her own journey, feelings and background and to why she lives alone without family. As a group, they shall jointly nail the bastards who deserve it - but who cannot be formally convicted by law.
The group will expand over the series, and we will meet them in different constellations as well as in their private life. How will this secret make an impact on their closest ones? We will follow all our characters through revenge and difficulties - to create an understanding of where all this pain came from. We want to build an interesting drama in which we immerse ourselves in our characters as they step into this new double life.
We want to make a cult classic series about injustice towards women all over the world. "The Wolves" ambition is to start a debate. Why are women less respected than men? In sports, politics, film and everywhere. We want the world to change by showing what happens when you turn the tables around. The show is going to be Femme Fantastic.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
We have the concept, the characters and the storyline for the first season - but we need help to convince a channel to be brave enough to pay for the show. We can do that through showing people's support and willingness for the project - and at the same time with developing the concept further.
We did a trailer first to simply show the doubters that this is something people want to see. And by shooting this pilot - financed with our own money and by people's warm minds and hard work - and with your help we can make this happen!
To everyone who will back us or who just believes in the concept.
Also a warm heart to our amazing team and actors who did this in favour for the project without any payment;

Risks and challenges
The risks would be that the episodes become insensitive and flat,
They need to contain authentic, yet cinematic, stories, characters and interesting cases (based on true stories). This is why we need your support - to be able to develop this firmly before the next steps of the financing process.
