Syfy is expanding its relationship with Entertainment One as the NBCUniversal-owned cable network has acquired Canadian original scripted werewolf drama “Bitten,” The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on the best-selling novels “Women of the Otherworld” by Kelley Armstrong, the supernatural thriller stars “Smallville’s” Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence. The 13-episode drama will unspool on Syfy — and Bell Media’s Space network in Canada — in 2014.
“The series follows Elena as she attempts to escape a world she never wanted to be part of (as well as the man who turned her into a werewolf), abandoning her pack and taking refuge in a new city, where she works as a photographer and hides her werewolf existence from her boyfriend. When bodies begin turning up in her pack’s backyard, she finds herself back at Stonehaven, the werewolves’ ancestral domain, where she will stop at nothing to defend her pack.”
“Bitten,” which co-stars Greg Bryk, Greyston Holt and Paul Greene, hails from No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment and eOne in association with Space and Bell Media.
