Being Human Creators Turn Their Attentions To SuperheroesS

Add another show to the list of TV projects based around new takes on the superhero genre, but this one might be worth paying attention to: It's coming from the makers of the BBC's Being Human.

Joining the overcrowded television skies of Heroes, Misfits,No Heroics and the upcoming No Ordinary Heroesand The Cape, new series Orphans, an upcoming hour-long drama for BBC One, will be the first show from Scoundrel, the new production company set up by Being Human creator Toby Whithouse and producer Matthew Bouch. Initial reports say that the series will follow different superheroes in a world that will gradually be revealed to be very different from our own, with a tone similar to their successful supernatural series.
