With the launch of HBO Max back in May, the WarnerMedia streaming service launched a few original programs, but nothing that got people really excited about the new platform--aside from Elmo's late night talk show. However, coming this September, a new sci-fi series called Raised By Wolves will launch, and it may be just what the service needs.

Ridley Scott will executive produce the upcoming series, which arrives on September 3. Scott is the mind behind sci-fi classics like Blade Runner and Alien. During the CTAM 2020 presentation, the first trailer for Raised By Wolves was revealed, and it's pretty intense. Check it out below.

The 10-episode series--the first two of which Scott directed--takes place on an alien planet where human children are being raised by two androids. "As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task," reads an official synopsis.

The show will feature the cast of Amanda Collin (A Conspiracy of Faith), Abubakar Salim (Fortitude), Winta McGrath (Aloft), Niamh Algar (The Virtues), Jordan Loughran (The Infiltrator), Matias Varela (Narcos), and others.

Scott will be joined by writer and creator Aaron Guzikowski along with David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle), Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners) and Mark Huffam (The Martian) serving as executive producers.

While HBO Max does contain some cool elements setting it apart from other services, like director's and extended cuts of films, it's still hard to watch as it is not yet available on Amazon Fire or Roku devices.
