With Laura Vandervoort as a werewolf...
SyFy is set to air the first season of Space and Entertainment One's upcoming werewolf series Bitten. Space and eONe announced the news today for the series, which will begin its first thirteen-episode season in 2014.
The series is based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by Kelley Armstrong and stars Laura Vandervoort (Smallville) as as Elena Michaels, the world's only female werewolf. Greg Bryk, Greyston Hold and Paul Green will also star.
As someone who spent much of her childhood in the foster system, Elena (Vandervoort) had always craved a "normal" life and thought she finally found it with her boyfriend Clayton Danvers (Holt). But the secret life he kept from her ended up changing her own life forever. With one bite, Elena was forced to survive within the Pack as a werewolf. Still craving the normal life she lost, Elena takes refuge in Toronto working as a photographer and dating a new man. Hiding her werewolf existence from her ad-exec boyfriend Phillip McAdams (Greene), Elena is pulled back into her former life when bodies turn up in the backwoods of Stonehaven, the rural mansion that has been home to the Pack for generations. Caught between two worlds and two loves, Elena returns to Stonehaven out of duty, offering her support to Clay's surrogate father and leader of the Pack Jeremy Danvers (Bryk). But once back in the fold, Elena realizes that when push comes to shove she'll stop at nothing to defend and protect her Pack.
