News on two shows heading to Syfy crossed our desk this afternoon, and figuring you’re as anxious to kick off your weekend as we are, we thought we’d combine them here in one story to keep things quick and easy.
First off, for those of you looking forward to the new Canadian scripted series “Bitten,” it’ll be arriving Monday, January 13, 2014, at 10PM following the season premieres of “Lost Girl” (Season 4; 8PM) and “Being Human” (Season 4; 9PM).
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” consists of 13 one-hour episodes.
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.
Next, if you’re one who likes to look ahead, EW reports that a new Syfy horror project is on its way: “The Woods,” executive produced by Chris Fedak, who co-created “Chuck” and served as showrunner on the cult-favorite dramedy. The script is by writer Liz Phang (The CW’s “90210,” HBO’s “Hung”), and the project is described as follows:
A young woman returns to the mysterious wooded mansion her sister disappeared from when they were girls, only to learn that the sinister beings that took her sister are still there.
In addition to Fedak and Phang, executive producers include Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
