Being Human USA Update

As has happened many times before, a British television series finds itself being remade for American audiences. This time the series is Being Human.

Based on the BBC3 series, the American version of Being Human is being made by the SyFy Channel and is expected to air sometime in early 2011.

According to the SyFy Channel website:

“Syfy’s all-new drama series Being Human, starring Sam Witwer (Smallville, Battlestar Galactica), Meaghan Rath (The Assistants), Sam Huntington (Cavemen, Superman Returns) and Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural) has commenced production in Montreal, Canada. Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes) is Director and Co-Executive Producer with Executive Producer Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth) and husband and wife Executive Producers/Writers Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood). Muse Entertainment is producing 13 1-hour episodes for Syfy.

Being Human, a re-imagining of the acclaimed UK series created by Toby Whithouse, follows three paranormal, 20-something roommates living in Boston – vampireAidan” (Witwer), werewolfJosh” (Huntington) and ghostSally” (Rath) – as they struggle to hide their dark secrets from the world, while helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives and trying to be human. Mark Pellegrino plays Aidan’s charismatic but menacing vampire mentor “Bishop.”

The producer is Irene Litinsky (Human Trafficking, The Phantom) of Muse Entertainment, the director of photography is Pierre Jodoin (The Last Templar, Secrets of the Mountain) and the production designer is Zoe Sakellaropoulo (The Last Templar, The Phantom).”

A cast photo has also finally been released depicting Sam Huntington, Sam Witwer and Meaghan Rath as their werewolf, vampire and ghost counterparts Josh, Aidan and Sally.

UPDATE: Bringing you even more promotional shots from Being Human (USA)!

Will Being Human (USA) live up to the reputation of it’s predecessor? It’s obviously too early to know but I sure hope so.

    Thanks, Chris.

    I can’t wait until this comes to America. With True Blood, The Gates, and Being Human, I’ll be set.
