More actors have been cast in Bitten, the new Canadian show based on Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series (which begins with the book titled Bitten). Joining werewolf Elena (played by Smallville alumna Laura Vandervoort) are the three main men in her life: Greg Bryk will play Pack Alpha Jeremy Danvers, Greyston Holt has been cast as Clayton Danvers, and Paul Greene is Philip McAdams.
Here's the premise for the show, which will feature the only female werewolf:
A foster child, 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 forever. With one small bite, Elena was forced to survive life with the Pack as a werewolf. Still craving the normal life she lost, Elena finds refuge in Toronto working as a photographer and dating a new man. Hiding her werewolf existence from her ad-exec boyfriend Philip McAdams (Greene), Elena is pulled back into her former life when bodies turn up in the backwoods of Stonehaven, the rural mansion that has served as a werewolf sanctuary for generations. Caught between two worlds and two loves, Elena returns to Stonehaven out of duty, turning to Clay’s foster-father and leader of the Pack Jeremy Danvers (Bryk) for support. But once back in the fold, Elena realizes that when push comes to shove, like any true alpha female, she’ll stop at nothing to defend her family.
Just a quick rundown of the show makes it sound as though it will appeal to Lost Girl fans—it's got a strong female lead kicking ass (and taking names), a whole new supernatural world for the heroine to learn about, enemies trying to take her and her world apart, and some intriguing and difficult romantic entanglements. Bitten will debut in early 2014.
