'Bitten' is based on Kelly Armstrong’s Women Of The Otherworld novels, starring Laura Vandervoort (Smallville) as Elena Michaels, the lone female werewolf in existence.
Part of the press release reads:
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.”
"Bitten" also stars Greg Bryk (Rookie Blue) as the werewolf Pack Alpha, Jeremy Danvers, and Greyston Holt (Alcatraz) as Elena’s werewolf ex-boyfriend Clayton Danvers, along with Paul Greene (The Client List) as Elena’s current boyfriend, Philip McAdams.
