SOME ROOMATES ARE SCARIER THAN OTHERS

�The U.S. premiere of co-production, Being Human�

Being Human, a BBC AMERICA co-production, is a witty and extraordinary look into the lives of three twenty-somethings and their secret double-lives � as a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost. Russell Tovey (Doctor Who, The History Boys), Lenora Crichlow (Sugar Rush, Doctor Who) and Aidan Turner (The Clinic) star as housemates trying to live normal lives, despite their strange and dark secrets. Being Human premiered Saturday, July 25, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

George (Russell Tovey) and Mitchell (Aidan Turner) work in anonymous drudgery as hospital porters. They lead lives of quiet desperation under the burden of a terrible secret�Mitchell's a vampire and George a werewolf. Deciding to start life afresh and leave behind the dark side, they move into a house, only to find that Annie, the ghost of a woman killed in mysterious circumstances, haunts it. As the monster threesome deal with the challenges of their new life together, they're united in a desire to blend in with their human neighbors.

By all appearances, George is a mild-mannered and geeky guy - except for one night a month when he's a flesh-hungry, predatory werewolf. Mitchell is good-looking, laid-back and, unlike George, has an easy confidence with the ladies. But he's also suffering withdrawal from the blood he craves. Annie (Lenora Crichlow) is chatty, insecure and desperate for company and now that death has separated them, she longs for her fianc�, who owns the house she haunts.

But with unwelcome intruders into their lives, a threatened revolution from the vampire underworld and constant threats of exposure � on top of the day-to-day issues faced by young people � the only thing they may be able to rely on is each other.

Being Human is already garnering fans and wowing critics, People Magazine says "True Blood fans will enjoy this milder British import � it's Friends for ghouls" while TV Guide effuses, "Being Human is frighteningly good" and Variety raves that it is "refreshingly unpretentious and great fun."
