Based on #1 New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld novels, the 13-episode “Bitten” is a steamy, emotionally charged supernatural thriller starring Laura Vandervoort (“Smallville,” “V”) 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”) as werewolf Pack “Alpha” Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt (“Alcatraz”) as Elena’s werewolf ex-boyfriend Clayton Danvers, and Paul Greene (“The Client List”) as Elena’s current beau, Philip McAdams.
