Being Human is based on the acclaimed British series of the same name created by Toby Whithouse. It is about vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), who share a Boston brownstone and struggle to keep their secrets from the world. But leading normal lives is a lot harder than it looks for three paranormal roommates. 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.

Executive producers are Michael Prupas (The Kennedys, Pillars of the Earth), Jeremy Carver (Supernatural), Anna Fricke (Men in Trees, Everwood), Rob Pursey and Toby Whithouse. Carver and Fricke are writers/showrunners as well. Irene Litinsky is series producer; and Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Heroes) is co-executive producer. Muse Entertainment is producing the show’s 13 one-hour episodes.
