”So, a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost all live together in a house …” If that premise sounds like the beginning of a joke, it’s because it is … sort of. BBC America is gearing up to debut Being Human, a horror-comedy about three twenty-somethings, each of whom happens to be a supernatural being.
Those of you out there with cable (pretty much everyone but my wife and me) will be happy to hear about not one or two, but three cool British shows making their way to BBC America later this year.
You may recall a while back we gave you a heads up about a new show being produced for the BBC called “Being Human”; the story of a vampire, werewolf and ghost co-habitating in an apartment in London. While the premise sounds ripe for wacky hijinks, the actual execution was smart, funny and engaging.
Those blokes in the UK seem to always be one step ahead of us when it comes to good TV. How many shows on our major networks right now are remakes of British series? Hopefully we’ll be picking up on this new horror trend hitting the UK shortly, too.
