Another werewolf show for Fox?

But the network that canceled Dollhouse, Firefly and, amusingly, Werewolf might be stretching America's love affair with fanged furries to its breaking point.

Last year, we reported that Fox was eyeing Bitches, about a pack of urban shewolves. Now comes news that it's developing a second werewolf show called Howl, from Dreamworks TV. Variety says that Howl is a family drama about warring werewolf clans in a small Alaska town.

It sounds like Fox is looking to grab some of that Team Jacob money with its own hairy version of The Vampire Diaries.

Oddly, the show's writer, Joshua Miller, said his script reflects the "changes" going on in the country. (You know, like our obsession with werewolf crap.) He says Howl is all about "the psychology of living with change."

I'll let you ponder whatever it is Mr. Miller is talking about while I sit here and wait for MTV's Teen Wolf remake to premiere. (Yes, that's really happening too.)

So what do you think? Will you be sick of werewolves once this thing rears its beastly head?

I think I'll content myself with Being Human and waiting until the DVDs of She-Wolf of London come out.

I think the appropriate question is 'will either show be any good?' The chances of either one being remotely entertaining or even watchable are small, so they'll be cancelled and we can all proven right. On the off-chance that either or both are actually good, well I could live with that. Might need a bigger TiVo, though.

They could skip the immediate cancellation, and simply re-air the beloved "Big Wolf on Campus":

Oddly enough, also starring Rachelle Lefevre, of The Twilight Saga.

Never even heard of Werewolf.
