Animal Planet Howls With New Series LIVING WITH THE WOLFMAN - A Twist on Your Average Family

- Meet Shaun and Helen, Britain's Tarzan and Jane, in Network's Immersive New Dramedy -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 1 -- British wolf expert Shaun Ellis has become famous -- or possibly infamous -- for his unprecedented experiences embedded in a wolf pack. By studying the behaviors and social structures of these canine creatures, Shaun hopes to promote a greater human understanding of wolves while helping to regrow wolf populations. For years, he has been sleeping, eating and brawling with a pack of captive wolves at Combe Martin Wildlife Park in Devon, England, successfully infiltrating the pack and becoming its peacemaker. At times, it seems that Ellis is just short of becoming a wolf himself, and he might jump at the chance if it weren't for his other true love -- Helen Jeffs. Helen is Shaun's fiancee, but when it comes to the wolves, she is still a novice -- not yet integrated into this extension of Shaun's family.

That is all about to change. Beginning Tuesday, October 21, at 10 PM (ET/PT), LIVING WITH THE WOLFMAN follows Shaun and Helen as Shaun attempts to bring his two loves together. What will the family think of Helen? In her journey to become accepted by Shaun's pack, Helen must face her fears and get closer to these wild animals than most people would ever dare. She goes to extremes, changing her diet and hygiene habits in order not to disturb the wolves' keen sense of smell. Once inside the pack, Helen has to growl, bark and bite her way to authority (literally), all under Shaun's guidance. She comes uncomfortably close to the wolves as she defends her place on the carcasses of prey and even regurgitates her own food into the wolves' mouths all in hopes of becoming part of Shaun's mission and the first woman ever to live with wolves.

But there is more to this couple than life inside the enclosure. During her initiation into the pack, Helen must find a way to balance her wolf life with domestic life. Getting her nails done, going to dinner with Shaun -- regular life doesn't stop just because the wolves need a nanny. LIVING WITH THE WOLFMAN shows Shaun and Helen's life away from the pack too, but these concerned parents never stay away long.

Throughout this journey, Shaun and Helen are emotionally and physically battered, living constantly with the knowledge that the pack could turn on them at any moment. However, they consider these risks entirely worthwhile for the progression of the pack and the wolf species. Shaun and Helen are passionate about the cause and hope to promote a greater human understanding of these often misunderstood animals.

"When you fall for a wolfman, you put more than your heart on the line," says Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. "We think viewers will be riveted by Helen's experiences as she tries to commit to this new life and by the unique love that Shaun and Helen have for each other and for the wolves."

Starting October 21, LIVING WITH THE WOLFMAN introduces viewers to this not-so-average couple. This series chronicles Helen's successful, or not so successful, introduction into the pack. The animal world is unpredictable, and in this life and death situation, all they have is each other.

LIVING WITH THE WOLFMAN is produced for Animal Planet by Tigress Productions. Andrew Jackson is the executive producer for Tigress. Erin Wanner is the executive producer for Animal Planet.
