"BEDLAM" JOINS BBC AMERICA'S SUPERNATURAL SATURDAY LINEUP

If Melrose Place were haunted, it would be Bedlam Heights

Welcome to Bedlam Heights, the stylish new apartment building with sexy tenants and gorgeous decor. But little do its new residents suspect that behind the luxury fittings lie unimaginable horrors. This is a place tainted by abuse, suffering and death - and the ghosts of its dark and violent past are out for revenge. As the direct descendent of those who ran the asylum for generations, Kate (Charlotte Salt, The Tudors) - who both lives and works there as a sales agent - is a prime target. Everybody has a dark side in this new series also starring Theo James (Downton Abbey), Ashley Madekwe (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Hugo Speer (Skins) and Will Young (Skins). If Melrose Place were haunted, it would be Bedlam Heights. Bedlam premieres Saturday, October 1, 10:00pm ET/PT. It moves to its regular time slot Saturday, October 8, 9:00pm ET/PT as part of Supernatural Saturdays.

In this modern take on a haunted house story, Kate (Salt) lives in Bedlam Heights with roommates Ryan (Young) and Molly (Madekwe). There's tension around the apartment - both the sexual and the out-of-work-roommate kinds. Kate and her father, Warren (Speer), own the building, which has been in the family for generations. Overly self-confident but ultimately self-destructive, Kate is tasked to fill the remaining vacant apartments. She's surprised by the unexpected arrival of Jed (James), her adopted cousin, who storms into her apartment only to find her in a compromising position. With a checkered past and mental health issues, he's a troubled man who sees ghosts and visions of the past. Recent messages to 'Save Kate,' propel him back into Kate's life. Gradually Jed uncovers the terrifying secrets held in Bedlam Heights, while trying to retain his sanity. He's convinced Kate is in danger from the spooks of Bedlam, but unbeknown to him, the truth will be far more terrifying...

Together, Jed, Kate and their roommates Ryan and Molly collide head-on with the lunacy of Bedlam Heights, while simultaneously wrestling with another kind of madness altogether - a lively, messy, edgy world of relationships, commitments and friendship.
