With the January 17, 2011, premiere date for Syfy’s “Being Human” redux just a few weeks away, the network’s promotions department has started sending out press kits for the show, and we’ve got a sneak peek at what they contain.
Blastr put together the following “unboxing” video of the package, and below that you’ll find about half of the images they posted as well. Be sure to hit up their site for the rest.
We’re kind of digging the “True Blood” vibe we got from the campaign, and combining that with the fact that the great Mark Pellegrino plays a major role in the events that will be taking place, we say January 17th can’t get here soon enough! And if we’re let down, well then, we only have to wait until spring, 2011, for BBC America to start airing Season Three of the British version.
“Being Human” is a re-imagining of the acclaimed BBC original series that follows three 20-something roommates: a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf who are struggling to keep their dark secrets from the world while also helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives.
“‘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.
The series will star Sam Witwer (“Smallville”, “Battlestar Galactica”) as vampire Aidan, Meaghan Rath (“The Assistants”) as ghost Sally, Sam Huntington (“Cavemen”, Superman Returns) as werewolf Josh, and Mark Pellegrino (“Lost”, “Supernatural”) as Bishop: The Vamp Ringleader. Rounding out the creative team is Adam Kane (“The Mentalist”, “Heroes”) as director and co-executive producer with executive producer Michael Prupas (“The Kennedys”, “Pillars of the Earth”) alongside husband and wife executive producers/writers Jeremy Carver (“Supernatural”) and Anna Fricke (“Men in Trees”, “Everwood”).
Muse Entertainment will be producing 13 compelling one-hour episodes for Syfy.
