ABC to the wolves with The Big C's Jenny Bicks to adjust Karen Russell's smash hit book St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves.

The show fixates on abstruse and appealing twins Claudette and Felix, 16, who, when they appear at the world class St. Lucy's life experience school, change the school and the little town of Green Hills, Maine, in ways nobody could have envisioned.

The Walking Dead's Channing Powell will pen the script with Bicks on board to supervise. John Jacobs will also exec produce the drama, which hails from 20th Century Fox Television where Bicks is under an overall deal.

First published in 2007, St. Lucy's is a collection of 10 short stories set in the swamps of the Florida Everglades where wolf-like girls are reformed by nuns, a family survives by wrestling alligators in a theme park and girls sail away on crab shells. It was the debut novel for Russell, who was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" in 2013.

St. Lucy's marks Bicks' third sale of the development season, joining NBC's Marley & Me follow-up as well as a comedy set up at Fox with Max Greenfield.

Bicks and Powell are repped by UTA.
