Rats are humans, humans are rats. This is a pilot for a proposed adult animated TV series, which at one time I had in development with Tiger Aspect. My original vision of this series was that it was a kind of gritty soap opera about a family of rats who run a courier company in the heart of London's West End. It was meant to be a series about London and the incredible array of characters living in it, there being a rat equivalent of every social type you could think of. The project was abandoned, mostly because adult animation in the UK is notoriously difficult to finance. Oh and yes, it required guts and vision to back it. Welcome to the Rat Race.
