Time to add a little furry flavor to your Hump Day! The first teaser video has hit the interwebs for the upcoming werewolf series from Syfy, “Bitten,” and we have it for you right here to howl for.
A new breed of werewolves is coming to Syfy with the acquisition of the first season of the new Canadian scripted series “Bitten” from leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne). Season 1 of “Bitten,” consisting of 13 one-hour episodes, will premiere on Syfy in 2014.
Based on the New York Times best-selling Women of the Otherworld novels by Kelley Armstrong, “Bitten” is an emotionally charged supernatural thriller starring Laura Vandervoort (“Smallville,” Ted) as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence.
Desperate to escape both a world she never wanted to be part of and the man who turned her into a werewolf, Elena (Vandervoort) has abandoned her Pack and taken refuge in a new city. There, she works as a photographer and hides her werewolf existence from her new boyfriend. When bodies start turning up in her Pack’s backyard, Elena finds herself back at Stonehaven, the werewolves’ ancestral domain. Torn between two worlds and two loves, she quickly realizes that – when push comes to shove – she’ll stop at nothing to defend her Pack.
“Bitten” also stars Greg Bryk (A History of Violence, “Rookie Blue”) as werewolf Pack “Alpha” Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt (“Alcatraz,” “Durham County”) as Elena’s werewolf ex-boyfriend Clayton Danvers, and Paul Greene (“The Client List,” “Wicked Wicked Games”) as Elena’s current beau, Philip McAdams.
“Bitten” is produced by No Equal Entertainment, Hoodwink Entertainment, and eOne in association with Space and Bell Media, with the participation of Rogers Cable Network Fund and Cogeco Program Development Fund and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. Executive producers include J.B. Sugar for No Equal Entertainment, Patrick Banister and John Barbisan for Hoodwink Entertainment, and Tecca Crosby, John Morayniss, and Margaret O’Brien for eOne. Daegan Fryklind and Grant Rosenberg are Executive Producers and Co-Showrunners. Many of the notable directors this season include Brad Turner (“Homeland”), John Fawcett (“Orphan Black”), T.J. Scott (“Spartacus”), and Andy Mikita (“Stargate Universe”).
