Wolf Lake is an American television series that originally aired on CBS. Wolf Lake follows a pack of werewolves living in a Seattle suburb. The first 5 episodes aired on CBS, but due to low ratings CBS cancelled it. A total of nine aired episodes and a non-aired pilot were made before the show was cancelled. UPN acquired the rights (but didn't produce any new episodes) and re-aired the entire show. ITV bought the rights to show the series in the United Kingdom and the SCI FI Channel bought the rights to show the series in the United States.[1] Ran Galor's song "Quiet the Night" was the theme song.[citation needed] There was an unaired pilot to the series that would have taken the storyline in a very different direction.

Wolf Lake: The Complete Series is available on DVD.[2]

Summary[edit]

Seattle policeman John Kanin proposes to his girlfriend, Ruby Wilder, and she accepts. However, as she gets into her car, she is attacked and all Kanin finds is a severed hand. He travels to her hometown of Wolf Lake to find some answers. However, his experiences there raise even more questions. What John doesn't know is that some of the inhabitants of Wolf Lake are actually werewolves. The werewolves, or the ones who survive the change, live on the "Hill" and enjoy special treatment, separated from the normal humans.

The New York Time said it was "a promisingly quirky pilot."[3] Variety's Michael Speier "sometimes works as high drama but sometimes comes off as extremely silly" [4]
