PARAMOUNT+ ANNOUNCES RODRIGO SANTORO WILL STAR OPPOSITE SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR IN NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, “WOLF PACK”
Santoro Joins Previously Announced Cast Members Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson and Tyler Lawrence Gray
Series Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios
Sept. 14, 2022 – Paramount+ today announced that Rodrigo Santoro (“Westworld”) is set to star opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar in the upcoming original series WOLF PACK. Production on the series, produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, is underway in Atlanta, Ga. WOLF PACK is slated to premiere later this year in the U.S. and internationally where the streaming service is available.
Santoro most recently starred in ZDF Studios’ exciting six-part series “Boundless,” and in the critically acclaimed Brazilian feature “7 Prisoners,” which won Best Foreign Language Film at the 2021 Venice Film Festival. Additionally, he starred in the film “Project Power” opposite Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and in the television drama series “Reprisal.” Santoro is known globally for starring alongside Academy Award Winner Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood and Geoffrey Wright in the hit series “Westworld.”
Based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom, WOLF PACK follows a teenage boy and girl whose lives are forever changed when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature. Santoro plays Garrett Briggs, a Los Angeles park ranger dedicated to protecting the environment, and adoptive father to the remarkable teenagers. A man of strong values, he is also someone with dark secrets and deep suspicions, especially towards anyone questioning the relationship with his children who were found in the wildfire years earlier.
Previously announced cast members include Sarah Michelle Gellar (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as Kristin Ramsey, Armani Jackson (“Honor Society,” “Chad”) as Everett, Bella Shepard (“iCarly,” “The Wilds”) as Blake, Chloe Rose Robertson (“Wildflower”) as Luna, and Tyler Lawrence Gray (“Our Town,” “Macbeth”) as Harlan.
