Being human: nobody ever said it was easy. But for three twenty-something roommates - who happen to be a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost - is it even possible? By turns frightening, witty, and romantic, Being Human explores what it means to be human through the eyes of these outsiders.
"Being Human is a smart, contemporary, young and imaginative series that reflects Syfy's new brand positioning. We are very excited to adapt this for an American audience and bring it into Syfy's family of programming," said Dave Howe, President, Syfy.
Being Human stars:
Sam Witwer (JAG, Murder in Small Town X, Battlestar Galactica) as the good-looking and laid-back Aidan who has the gift of the gab and an easy confidence with the ladies but is also a blood-sucking vampire struggling with going cold-turkey from the blood he craves;
Meaghan Rath (15/Love, Fries With That) as Sally, a loveable and chatty ghost desperate for company who still pines for her fiancé, Danny, whom she was due to marry before a fatal accident left her with a ghostly affliction;
Sam Huntington (Fanboys, Veronica Mars) as the lovable Josh, who before his life-altering encounter with a werewolf, had it all - a beautiful fiancée, a loving family, many friends, and was enrolled in MIT - but now he battles with a double identity as a mild-mannered and geeky hospital porter who, once a month, transforms into a flesh-hungry, predatory, grumpy werewolf;
and Mark Pellegrino (Supernatural, Capote).
Being Human was developed by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood) from the original British series of the same name that was created by Toby Whithouse (No Angels, Hotel Babylon, The House of Eliott) and comes from Muse Entertainment Enterprises in Montreal and is being distributed internationally by Zodiak Rights. Rounding out the creative team is Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes) and Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth, this is wonderland).
