Canadian werewolf series Bitten coming to Syfy next year.
Vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts and all other sorts of supernatural beasties are hot right now. Look at the popularity of Syfy’s own Being Human, which showcases all of the above? Now, Syfy is hoping to continue to cash in on that trend by picking up Canadian series Bitten.
Bitten is based on the Women of the Otherworld novels by Kelley Armstrong. It’s about werewolves and stars popular genre actress Laura Vandervort. Here’s the series’ official synopsis:
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 is a fantastic blend of supernatural action, intense thrills, smouldering drama and a tortured love story that artfully adapts characters beloved for more than a decade by millions of readers around the world,” said Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Programming, Syfy. “It’s an excellent complement to our roster of programming and we cannot wait to share Elena, her Pack and their stories with the Syfy audience.”
The first season of Bitten will premiere in the US on Syfy in 2014.
