Not Barking But Howling is a sitcom written by the British actor and writer Jonathan Clarkson. While the main series itself is currently in development, storylines and characters from the show have been appearing on the internet in various forms since December 2006. The show tells the story of two werewolves, Mig and Prentis Hatchett, who run a minicab firm in New Cross, south east London. After the momentous events of the series’ first episode – so far only hinted at in online material - make them aware that they are being hunted, they are forced to take in their sharp-tongued Jewish sister-in-law, Diana Hatchett-Levy and enter into an uneasy living arrangement whilst trying to keep out of sight. A 5 minute [pitch trailer] was filmed for the show in 2006, to help promote it and sell the idea, and to date this has generated considerable attention on myspace and YouTube. To further flesh out the show and give people content to return to online, Clarkson began writing an A-Z of Not Barking But Howling, with each entry giving an insight into the background of the characters and their world. These have so far only been released in blog entries on the programme’s myspace page. In April 2007 a miniseries of webisodes of Not Barking But Howling was shot. These were given the umbrella title of “The Girl Who Cried Wolf”, and featured the actress India Fisher in a guest-starring role as a character named Delilah Tripp. They are due to begin broadcasting over the internet on November 24, 2007, to coincide with the full moon.
