Last month things got a little hairy for us when we learned that SyFy had scooped up the Canadian werewolf series "Bitten" to begin airing sometime in 2014 and today we've got something to howl about as we have landed a new promo for the Laura Vandervoort-starring show, and I gotta say that it looks like it could be a hell of a lot of fun!
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.
The series marks the latest Canadian import at Syfy as the cable network looks to firm up its lineup of original scripted programming for 2014. In addition to the second season of "Defiance", Syfy also will return "Continuum" and premiere Ron Moore's "Helix", among others.
Mmmm! Laura Vandervoort can bite me anytime she wants!
