Victoria Justice will star in The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, a teen comedy with a sci-fi twist premiering Saturday, Oct. 23, at 8 PM (ET/PT). Since Victorious’ April 11 premiere in its regular timeslot, it has been the number-one program in the Sunday 8 PM time period with kids 2-11 and kids 6-11.
Jordan Sands (Justice) is an awkward, allergy-prone 17-year-old, forced to be the woman of the house after her mother’s death. Her father, (Matt Winston), is struggling to make ends meet, while younger brother, Hunter (Chase Ellison, Tooth Fairy), drives his family crazy with gory pranks.
Things start to look up when they inherit their Great Uncle Dragomir Vucovic’s castle in Wolfsberg, Romania, which could relieve them of their financial woes. After arriving in Wolfsberg during Moonlight Mania, which honors the infamous Wolfsberg Beast, they meet the strange and steely Madame Varcolac (Shields) who currently cares for Uncle Dragomir’s ancient castle.
Having spent most of her life as the Wolfsberg Manor housekeeper, Madame V discourages David from selling the property, but perky real estate agent Paulina Von Eckberg has other plans in mind. Not everything is what it seems in this town and the Sands’ visit goes awry when a freak lab accident gradually..
..transforms Jordan into a werewolf. As her body changes, her personality does, and she becomes a graceful, athletic, self-confident young woman. But Jordan’s dark, hairy side is dangerous to others, and the change confuses her new suitor, Goran (Steven Grayhm), the town’s young, attractive butcher.
In order to salvage her crush and return back to her normal self, Jordan must rely on her pesky little brother and Madame V to save her before it’s too late. Photo Credit: Michael Courtney/Nickelodeon.
