We've said it before and we will say it again, we're watching this show because the Secret Apprentice/Doomsday/Crash Down, the genre sexsplosion himself — Sam Witwer — was cast to play a vampire. A character whose only real qualifications are to look good while having sex. We kid, we kid — actually, if the US version is anything like the BBC show, then these three supernatural roommates are in for some heavy-duty drama. These characters get accused of deadly serious crimes, some are abused, relationships are tested, it's really a wonderful series. Let's hope Syfy can do the British original justice.

Here's the official synopsis:

Show Summary: Being Human – The series follows three paranormal, 20-something roommates living in Boston – vampire "Aidan" (Witwer), werewolf "Josh" (Huntington) and ghost "Sally" (Rath) – as they struggle to hide their dark secrets from the world, while helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives and trying to be human. Mark Pellegrino plays Aidan's charismatic but menacing vampire mentor "Bishop" (Pelligrino).

Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes) is Director and Co-Executive Producer with Executive Producer Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth) and husband and wife Executive Producers/Writers Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood).

There will be 13 one-hour episodes, no word on a start date yet.
