With an expected premiere set for 2014, the Syfy channel has acquired the 13-episode first season of new Canadian scripted series Bitten from Entertainment One. The series is based on the Women Of The Otherworld novels by Kelly Armstrong. The books feature werewolves, witches, necromancers, sorcerers, and vampires struggling to fit as "normal" in today's world. The series also includes novellas and short stories, published online and one in an anthology. Bitten stars 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. She returns to Stonehaven, the werewolves’ ancestral domain, when bodies start turning up in her Pack’s backyard and she realizes she’ll stop at nothing to defend her Pack.
