Bitten, the Canadian series that originated on Space, has been licensed for U.S. broadcast on SyFy.
The first season of the 13-episode, one-hour series premieres in 2014. Based on the New York Times best-selling Women of the Otherworld novels by Canadian author Kelley Armstrong, the series stars Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaels, the world’s only female werewolf, as well as Greg Bryk as Pack Alpha Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt as Clayton Danvers, and Paul Greene as Philip McAdams.
Space ordered Bitten to series in August of 2012. eOne Entertainment joined as production partners before the series went to camera in spring of 2013. Bitten was shot over a five month period in-studio and on location in Toronto, Hamilton, and Cambridge, ON.
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.
