Hi Kelley,

I was wondering if Bell Media's SPACE holds the rights to the OtherWorld series in its entirety? The press release states "Based on the best-selling Women of the Otherworld novels by Canadian author Kelley Armstrong..." & the on screen credits also refer to novels, (dropping the Women of). Does that include thru 13, along with the shorts & novellas?

 You are credited as a co-executive producer, is that mostly an honorary title? or does that refer to the initial feedback you gave them? I know you've said you are very much hands off.

I saw that imdb had you credited with writing 3 episodes but that in an interview you said that hadn't come to pass, would you post on your site or tumblr if it happens? Here's hoping to future seasons...

Regarding another imdb note, is costume buyer Sarah Armstrong any relation?

I loved the Pack camaraderie in the sparring scene in episode 2.

Thank you, hope you are enjoying a nice cozy fire while snowed in

No, they wanted Bitten, Stolen, Broken, Frostbitten and the Pack prequels only, so that’s all they have. I suspect the only one you’ll see on the screen is Bitten (to some degree) and then it will go off onto its own stories. You can't do Stolen without Paige, Savannah, Xavier, Leah, Adam, Cass etc and they've made it clear they won't be using those characters--only werewolves.

Co-executive producer is 100% honorary Smiley

They asked me to write one an episode for season one, and I was very excited by the prospect…then I didn’t hear any more about it. I very much doubt they’d ask me now because, while the first few episodes stuck relatively close to Bitten, I’ve heard that changes significantly mid-season. Writing for season two would be like writing for someone else’s characters and plot. I’ll stick to my own Smiley

She’s no relation. Sorry!
