SYFY’S HIT SERIES HAVEN CASTS BREE WILLIAMSON (Gossip Girl, One Life To Live)

NEW YORK – May 4, 2012 – Syfy’s hit series Haven will get a new resident when Bree Williamson (Gossip Girl, One Life To Live) joins the cast for season three as psychiatrist Dr. Claire Callahan.

In her new role, Dr. Callahan becomes a close friend and confidant to Audrey Parker (Emily Rose). She also uses her skills to help “profile” potential perpetrators and, as a psychiatrist, to help the troubled citizens of Haven deal with their afflictions.

Season three of Haven picks up immediately following the events of the gripping season two finale with Audrey having been brutally kidnapped; Nathan (Lucas Bryan) warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke (Eric Balfour) seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill Haven citizens with troubles.

Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town’s many secrets, which also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.

From leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), Haven is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

The creative team behind Haven includes executive producers John Morayniss (The Firm, Hell On Wheels) from eOne Television and David MacLeod (Legends of the Fall, The Ray Bradbury Theater) of Big Motion Pictures, who are joined by Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller, Scott Shepherd (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone, Greek) of Piller/Segan/Shepherd and Matt McGuinness (Journeyman, Dark Blue) as well as Sam Ernst & Jim Dunn (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone), who also developed the series.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the U.S., Showcase in Canada and internationally on Universal Networks International’s channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series and concluded a deal with Germany’s Tele München Group (TMG) for the television rights in Continental Europe.

    Good for her. Nice that she found work.

  • Thomas

    Do we already know when Haven returns?

  • Kelly

    I’d guess a week or two after Eureka ends, Thomas.

  • Melanie

    @David, yes I should, it sounds like a good show especially now since Bree will be on it.

  • Thomas

    Thanks Kelly!

  • MBmomof3

    I will definitely check out this show. Love Bree Williamson and the other cast members aren’t too shabby either. Loved Stephen King’s Colorado Kid. Don’t know how this show slipped past our radar.

    Good news, she should add some interesting psychological points of view to the strange doings and people in Haven. I also hope they bring back the “other” Audrey Parker at some point. “Haven” is one of the best SciFi things that Syfy channel has going.
