Syfy's Being Human Remake Won't Be Watered Down

Syfy's Being Human remake will not water down the story lines that originated in the British series just because it's on American cable TV, the executive producers say. When adapting the show for Syfy, executive producer Jeremy Carver wanted to stay true to the darkness in the original. "It was creating a world and situations where we didn't shy from the morally ambiguous choices that our characters have to come across day to day." "What we loved about the original series is that...  http://www.tvguide.com/News/_television/genres/syfys-Being-Human-1027949.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Sam Witwer: The New Vampire in Town

As a proud sci-fi geek, you'd think that Sam Witwer ( Smallville, Battlestar Galactica ) would jump at the chance to play Aidan, a sexy 257-year-old bloodsucker in Syfy's reworking of Being Human , the BBC hit about three supernatural roomies. As it turns out, not so much.... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Sam-Witwer-New-1027947.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Being Human Remake Distances Self from Original

There have been a lot of across-the-pond remakes in television ( The Office and  Life on Mars , for example), and Being Human is the latest show to join those ranks. But the creator and stars of the show are making sure that their version (which premieres on SyFy on Monday, January 17) isn't perceived as just being a remake. Star Mark Pellegrino, who plays the vampire Bishop in the series, recently stated that he understands how fans of the original are feeling toward the upcoming remake. "I was one of those British version of  The Office guys and I was so upset [with the NBC version], even though Ricky Gervais was in on the creative process," he said. "I understand completely."

Can the new Being Human tell MORE story than the British one?

The American remake of BBC's Being Human may be good news for fans. Each season of the British show consisted of six episodes. Syfy is doing 13 episodes for the first season of its remake. Executive producer Jeremy Carver told the Television Critics Association today that he can give more time to the stories you loved from the BBC show. http://blastr.com/2011/01/can-the-new-being-human-t.php

Syfy's 'Being Human' cast and crew haven't really watched British version

Tackling the beloved original -- still airing in the UK and stateside on BBC America -- the producers and writers behind Syfy's "Being Human" adaptation are under close examination of how they'll make it their own. And apparently they're doing this by avoiding their source material. Executive producers Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke addressed reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, saying that they're really going for their own take. "We've actually only seen there first season," says Fricke, speaking for Carver and herself, "and I'd say we follow their trajectory for a few episodes."The first round of Syfy's "Being Human" comes in at 13 episodes, more than double the 6-episode run of the original. That extra space will be filled with new stories and arcs, and if they get an order beyond that, it will take them to uncharted territory."We made a point of not watching Season 2 when it aired on... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/syfy-being-human-cast-and-crew-havent-really-watched-british-version.html

'Being Human' promo: A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost walk into a bar

Britain's supernatural roommate drama, "Being Human," reveals its official stateside makeover on Jan. 17 with the debut of the SyFy original of the same name. And Zap2it has an exclusive first look at the latest promo. "One of Them" shows just how hard it is to be a kindly vampire -- not that the werewolf or the ghost have it much easier. The series follows the three friends as they try to fit in with the world around them -- often to little success. (If you're not yet familiar with the series, the title is something of a joke.)What should really whet fans appetites here the tease of how the new version plans to handle the spooky graphics. There's vampire eyes, walk-through ghosts and even a hint of a werewolf transformation. Expect "Being Human" to go all out on the latter. Russell Tovey's grueling full moon change in the original is a tough act... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/being-human-promo-a-vampire-a-werewolf-and-a-ghost-walk-into-a-bar.html
