A vampire, a ghost and a werewolf live together in human world and have to rule out house-warming parties so they won't reveal their secrets.
Although the new series is not debuting until next year, Syfy would like to give viewers a little taste of "Being Human". Adapted from successful BBC series, "Being Human" follows three supernatural beings living together in an apartment and trying to live like human beings in Boston.
In the U.S. version, Sam Witwer stars as Aidan the vampire, Meaghan Rath as Sally the ghost, and Sam Huntington as Josh the werewolf. Together they struggle to hide their dark secrets from the world, while helping each other navigate the complexities of living double lives and trying to be human. Mark Pellegrino from "Lost" plays Aidan's charismatic but menacing vampire mentor Bishop.
Two promos have been released ahead of the January premiere, revealing Aidan as the "ladykiller", Sally as "the free spirit" and Josh as the "underdog". The three struggle to act normal, but it proves to be harder since Josh can suddenly turn into animal on full moon, Aidan has an appetite for blood and Sally can vanish into thin air.
Witwer revealed more about his vampire character, telling Zap2It, "If you were a vampire [and] you were around for 200 years, you would...be able to compartmentalize what you were really feeling."
