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 Phillip 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. 
Also joining the BITTEN cast are Paulino Nunes (THE FIRM, CRA$H & BURN) and 
Steve Lund (HAVEN, ALPHAS) as werewolf father and son Antonio and Nick 
Sorrentino; Natalie Brown (BEING HUMAN, HAPPY TOWN) as Diane, Philip's sister 
and Elena's best friend in Toronto; Michael Xavier (THE BEST YEARS, NIKITA) as 
werewolf Logan; Genelle Williams (WAREHOUSE 13, THE LISTENER) as Logan's 
girlfriend Rachel; and Joel Keller (MEN WITH BROOMS, DURHAM COUNTY) as 
werewolf Peter. 
"We're so excited to see the rich world that Kelley Armstrong has created in 
her novels begin to take shape and come to life as we start production on this 
new series with an amazing cast," said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, 
Independent Production, Bell Media. "With Greyston and Paul joining Laura, the 
love triangle at the heart of the series is complete, and Greg is the perfect
