TORONTO – Canada’s Space sci-fi channel has placed a full-season order for Bitten, a one hour drama about a female werewolf.
The 13-part man vs. beast series from Vancouver producers No Equal Entertainment and Hoodwink Entertainment and Toronto’s Entertainment One is based on the Kelley Armstrong book series Women of the Otherworld.

The series, executive produced by J.B. Sugar, is to start production in Spring 2013 in Toronto.
Set in Toronto and upper New York State, Bitten portrays the world of 28-year-old Elena Michaels, the world’s only female werewolf who thought she’d found her one true love, Clayton.
But one small bite has her normal life vanish, leaving Elena to survive life living in a pack.
“Kelley Armstrong’s novels contain a rich world, compelling characters, and a deep mythology from which to build a dynamic television series,” Sugar, executive producer of No Equal Entertainment, said of the erotically-charged series.

The Bitten order follows Space, a division of Bell Media, earlier picking up the 13-part sci-fi series Orphan Black from Temple Street Productions.
That series portrays a woman faced with a mystery involving human clones and a conspiracy.
