The Art of Darkness

Hope it Comes to Cable

Big Dumb Object mentions an interesting TV pilot that just aired in the UK on BBC3. Entitled “Being Human,” here’s the official synopsis:

Contemporary supernatural drama about George and Mitchell, a pair of perennial outsiders. Working in the anonymous drudgery of the local hospital, they live lives of quiet desperation – because Mitchell is a vampire and George is a werewolf. Deciding to turn over a new leaf, they move into a house together, only to find that it is haunted by Annie, the ghost of a woman killed in mysterious circumstances. As a threesome, they deal with the challenges of being supernatural creatures, bonded by their desire to adopt the lifestyle of their neighbours – humanity.

If you’re in the UK, you can watch it on the BBC iPlayer. If you aren’t, you get a “Sorry, this video is only available in the UK” message. Poop.

Sounds fun. Maybe it’ll show up on BBCAmerica one of these days. (And I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if there was a torrent of the pilot available somewhere for the UK-challenged.)
