Dougherty Comments on Werewolf “Bitches”

A. Quinton — Oct. 29th 2008

As we reported earlier this month, Michael Dougherty is planning a TV series for Fox about female werewolves. The show is tentatively entitled Bitches. Earlier this month, Dougherty spoke to ShockTillYouDrop.com about some of the more carnal motivations behind the show.

The funny thing is I have always had this weird obsession with female werewolves. Even going back to The Howling there’s that famous transformation sequence that Joe Dante did with the fire and lovemaking. To me that was indicative of female sexuality – all sexuality has this beastly side of it. If you’re a werewolf, it should just be another aspect of yourself you’re trying to deal with. You do want to explore those parallels of being a werewolf and human sexuality. How can you date and fall in love with someone when you’re a werewolf and you start to turn when you’re aroused?

Very interesting, Michael. Very interesting indeed.

    My goodness, it looks like teh hyooman mainstream is about to get its first taste of bitey tail-pullings. Now I can dramatically rise up from my parliament chair with the stout fortitude of Winston Churchill and say “It’s about time. And by George, I have dibs on the first auditioning for the male Red Riding Hood archetype who gets stalked midway through the first season.”
