ABC2 continues to prove itself the strongest programmer of our secondary channels with news that Being Human is set to start in just over two weeks time.
In this 6 part UK series, three supernatural housemates in their 20s are trying to live as normal. One is a ghost, one a werewolf and the other a vampire.
All are trying to keep their dark side hidden from outsiders, but within their shared house, they can let out their dangerous and strange secrets.
Annie is a ghost, pining after her fiancé whom she was due to marry before the fatal accident at the house that left her with her ‘affliction’. Mitchell is a good-looking and laidback vampire and has an easy confidence with females, but he is a blood-sucker struggling against giving in to his vampire cravings. He is also being harassed by a vampire leader constantly trying to lure him back to his deadly habits.
George is an affable hospital porter who turns into a flesh-hungry, predatory werewolf every full moon. He fears for the dangers he presents at large, so agrees to transform within the ‘safety’ of their house, tearing it apart in the process.
The BBC has also commissioned a second series from writer Toby Whitehouse (Hotel Babylon, Doctor Who, Torchwood).
It airs 9:20pm Friday June 19 on ABC2 following the first season of Torchwood on the ABC at 8:30pm.
