The family that steals together, stays together. And if they're not too careful, they may go to jail together -- that is, if they don't kill each other first.
Welcome to the exhilarating world of TNT's testosterone-fueled series "Animal Kingdom" about a criminal family of thrill-seeking alpha dogs presided over by a ruthless and manipulative matriarch (played by Ellen Barkin).
The cable drama, created by Jonathan Lisco (Southland, Halt and Catch Fire), is based on the 2010 Australian true-crime film of the same name. However, instead of taking place in Melbourne, the series is set in the rough-and-tumble surfing scene of Southern California.
Also, starring Scott Speedman, Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary and Finn Cole as the thieving members of the Cody family, "Animal Kingdom" will debut its second season next month, beginning Tuesday, May 30th on TNT.
In the meantime, you can check out a newly-released trailer, above.
Animal Kingdom is an adrenaline-charged drama starring Ellen Barkin as the matriarch of a Southern California family whose excessive lifestyle is fueled by their criminal activities, with Scott Speedman as her second in command. Shawn Hatosy, Ben Robson, Jake Weary and Finn Cole also star.
