Production on the series, produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, is underway in Atlanta, Georgia.
Wolf Pack is slated to premiere later this year in the U.S. and internationally where the streaming service is available.
Rodrigo Santoro most recently starred in ZDF Studios’ 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 (See on Amazon) 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.
Rodrigo 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.

In addition to Davis, Joe Genier, Mike Elliott and Karen Gorodetzky serve as executive producers for Capital Arts. Jason Ensler, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Christian Taylor serve as executive producers.
