Screenterrier reported back in January on the casting of Eros Vlahos as the lead girl's younger brother in the Freaky Farleys. The Nickelodeon comedy series has now been renamed Summer in Transylvania and is currently filming in Hendon, London.
Sophie Stuckey (represented by Susan Angel and Kevin Francis Ltd) takes the lead role of Summer Farley. The series revolves around her struggles to make the best of her home, school and social life when her family relocates to Transylvania for her dad's job. Life in their new home is complicated when the local community, which of course, is comprised of zombies, werewolves, vampires and mummies, looks upon Summer's "normal" family as weird. At least Summer has two new friends to help her along:
Amy Wren (previously A&J Management, now Waring and McKenna). Amy also played the lead role of Chloe in Disney's Life Bites series.
Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, described the show as "kind of like Twilight but for kids and I play the main werewolf. It's exhausting stuff because I'm filming every weekday until April but I'm looking forward to seeing it on TV."
Eugene Simon (represented by United Agents) who played the lead in the BBC's My Family and Other Animals, plays Max.
Created by Andy Watts (My Parents Are Aliens), Nickelodeon UK plans to premiere this series in the autumn of 2010.
