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, and Bella Shepard (iCarly, The Wilds) as Blake.
