Dougherty Comments on Werewolf “Bitches”

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.

Werewolf “Bitches” Are Coming To Fox

Leave it to Fox to option a TV show with a title like Bitches. Us snobby werewolf fans ought not to roll our eyes, though! As reported by Fangoria, writer and director Michael Dougherty is bringing a series about werewolves to the small screen in 2009. The show’s called Bitches, and it’s about four female werewolves living in New York. Says Dougherty:

It’s Sex & The City with werewolves! They seduce people, then they eat them! The series will answer the questions: how do they feed, where do they work… It’s very funny.

Not much else is known about the series at this time, but you can keep an eye on Dougherty’s site for updates… and you know anything juicy will get posted here at Werewolf News too!
