Syfy Announces Premiere Date For US Being Human
Fans of the BBC America original series Being Human won’t have to wait much longer before they can see how the American version measures up: Syfy has announced a January premiere for their adaptation.
The American version of the British series about a werewolf, vampire and ghost sharing an apartment will debut on Syfy on Monday, January 17th at 9pm. The channel explains the set-up like this:
In Syfy’s new original series Being Human, leading normal lives is a lot harder than it looks for three paranormal roommates – vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington) – who share their secrets and a Boston brownstone. Together they try their best to be human while navigating the complexities of living double lives. Mark Pellegrino (Lost) co-stars as Bishop, Aidan’s charismatic but menacing vampire mentor.
The series is filled with familiar faces to genre fans. In addition to Lost and Supernatural‘s Pellegrino, Sam Witwer had a stint in Smallville and Sam Huntington has appeared in Human Target and Veronica Mars, as well as movies Superman Returns, Dylan Dog: Dead of Night and Fanboys.
