New fantasy drama ‘Wolfblood’ coming to CBBC

CBBC has commissioned a new children’s series, Wolfblood, to be filmed in and around Rowlands Gill in Tyne and Wear.

The series of 13 half-hour episodes will air on CBBC later this year and follows the character of Maddy Smith, who seems like an ordinary girl but can hear ultrasound, pick out a scent from a mile away and can see in the dark.

The official synopsis reads: “The truth is Maddy hides a secret even her closest friends don’t know about. Look into her eyes, but don’t get too close… because Maddy is a wolfblood. Wolfbloods have lived amongst us for centuries, disguising their abilities and blending in. When new boy Rhydian turns up at school her world gets a lot more complicated. If you think being a teenager is hard enough, try being a wolfblood teenager!”

CBBC controller Damian Kavanagh commented: “We’re always looking for programmes which bring something new to the channel for our audience to enjoy, and Wolfblood is a really exciting concept and one I believe will capture the imagination of our viewers.”
