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.
