Danny Cohen, controller of BBC Three, has just commissioned a new fantasy-horror drama pilot to transmit later this year, Being Human.
Danny Cohen told SFcrowsnest,"I'm very excited by the fresh feel of the drama pilots that we've commissioned. They are bold, vibrant pieces that draw together emerging talent with some of the strongest voices in British drama. These pilots are the first step in the development of a new generation of youthful drama series for BBC Three."
Being Human follows three young flatmates and the traumas and tribulations of co-habiting. The extra challenge for them is that one of them is a vampire, one is a ghost, and the other, a werewolf.
Produced by Touchpaper TV (NY-LON) and written by Toby Whithouse (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Being Human films in September 2007 in the Bristol area.
