Animal Kingdom revolves around a volatile and colorful cast of criminals…. a family of criminals.
According to TNT – After a heroin overdose kills his mom, teenager Joshua “J” Cody moves to Southern California to live with his freewheeling relatives. The family’s matriarch is J’s estranged grandmother, Janine “Smurf” Cody, from whom he’s been shielded for years. J soon finds out the reason for the isolation — Smurf and “her boys” make their livings through carefully planned armed robberies and other criminal activities. Prominent perpetrators are Smurf’s relatively level-headed right-hand man Baz and her three sons: mentally disturbed ex-con Pope, hyperactive drug user Craig, and suspicious Deran. In order to stay alive, J must prove loyal to his beguiling grandmother, who rules with a borderline-incestuous love.
The show first aired in 2016 and is about to begin filming season 4 which will air later in 2019. The TNT TV series is based on the 2010 Australian drama, also called “Animal Kingdom.” The movie was critically acclaimed and was an adaptation of the story of the Pettingill crime family. This crime drama stars Emmy and Tony Award winner Ellen Barkin with actor Finn Cole in the lead role of Joshua “J” Cody. “Animal Kingdom” was created by Jonathan Lisco.
