The script for “Werewolves Within” was penned by screenwriter and bestselling author Mishna Wolff, who secured a script deal for her idea as a participant in Ubisoft Film & Television’s Women’s Film and Television Fellowship. As one of the program’s first participants, Wolff had access to open-door mentorship with Ubisoft Film & Television’s top executives, and was able to draw from Ubisoft’s extensive library of IP for inspiration.

“Werewolves Within” is produced by Jason Altman, Margaret Boykin, and Andrew Lieberman for Ubisoft Film & Television; Matt Miller, Natalie Metzger, and Benjamin Wiessner for Vanishing Angle; and Sam Richardson. For more on Ubisoft Film & Television projects, check out our previous coverage.
