BBC AMERICA ACQUIRES NEW SEASONS OF BEING HUMAN

- Hit sci-fi show back for two U.S. premiere seasons -

BBC AMERICA today announced the acquisition of two new U.S. premiere seasons of the BBC AMERICA co-production, Being Human. The show's highly anticipated second season will premiere in late summer with the third season following shortly.

� Being Human (S1, 6 x 60 and S2, 6 x 60) is a Touchpaper Television and BBC AMERICA co-production for the BBC and is distributed by RDF Rights, part of the RDF Media Group.

Being Human premiered on the channel in July 2009 and quickly won over fans, with a sold out crowd at last year's San Diego Comic Con. The Los Angeles Times said it "has not only avoided any sci-fi Three's Company comparisons but wound up with a compelling, self-aware and funny story line. Buffy fans - come out of the Twilight and sink your teeth into this import" with The New York Times noting that "all three characters are highly appealing, but the charm of the show lies in the delicate balance of engrossing drama and disarming humor; the series is not campy or self-conscious, it's witty in an offhand, understated way."

Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow and Aidan Turner return as George, Annie and Mitchell, the three twenty-somethings trying to live as normally as possible despite being a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost. After the death of vampire leader Herrick at the end of season one, the supernatural friends are hoping they can now get on with their lives, but an even greater danger is lurking, within the very human world of which they want to be a part.

Werewolf George is coming to terms with the fact that he has Herrick's blood on his hands, and a girlfriend who knows his horrific secret. Meanwhile, turning down the door of death has implications for ghost Annie, but her confidence is at a peak and she's determined to stand up and be counted in the real world. And, with Herrick gone, Mitchell must appease the vampire world - can he find a way to lead by example?

The entire first season of Being Human is currently available on iTunes and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
