Syfy acquires Canadian werewolf drama 'Bitten'
The Canadian sci-fi pipeline remains strong for Syfy.
This week, Syfy acquired the American rights to "Bitten," a new Canadian werewolf drama from eOne studios.
Based on Kelley Armstrong's "Women of the Underworld" series, "Bitten" stars "Smallville" veteran Laura Vandervoort as Elena, the only female werewolf.
"'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," blurbs 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."
Syfy continues to have some success airing Canadian-produced dramas "Continuum" and "Lost Girl."
"Bitten" will premiere on Syfy in 2014.
