Writer Caitlin Moran is seeking funds to revive her Raised by Wolves sitcom.

The show, written by Moran and sister Caroline and based on their upbringing, was axed by Channel 4 after two series.

The siblings are attempting to raise £320,000 by 20 November in order to fund "at least one new episode".

"Our dream is to make a whole series," they wrote on Kickstarter. "But TV is really spendy - it involves a lot of people. The more money we get... the more we can spend on the production."

The show, which tells of a single mother raising a large family in Wolverhampton, was named best sitcom at the Rose d'Or awards last month.

"We were like, 'OK. You know what - let's do this. Let's do Raised By Wolves 3 - through Kickstarter!'" the Morans continued.

"They do it all the time in the US. Let's be the first UK show to give it a go."

As of Tuesday morning, more than £41,000 had been raised towards the sisters' goal.
