We are pleased to announce that Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld novel, Bitten, has been acquired by US cable network Syfy and will run for thirteen episodes. Laura Vandervoort (Smallville) will star as Elena Michaels, the clandestine werewolf struggling to get away from her true identity.
In Canada, the show can be accessed via Bell Media’s Space network, also next year. ”With a strong female lead at its core, we know audiences on both sides of the border will be rabid followers of Bitten,” commented Corrie Coe, Senior VP Independent Production at Bell Media.
On her role in the production, Armstrong wrote on her Tumblr, “I read the first couple of scripts—which were great! I visited the sound stages, but not while they were filming. That’s it. Why? Because I wrote the books, and now a fine team of writers is tackling the TV show.” Congratulations, Kelley, and we can’t wait to see what the world of Stonehaven looks like on TV!
