'Being Human' turning American for Syfy

beinghuman_290.jpgSyfy is joining the werewolf and vampire TV bandwagon.

The cable network has ordered 13 episodes of the BBC show -- remade for American audiences -- about a vampire, werewolf and ghost who are roommates, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Yes, it sounds kind of goofy, but the British version has handled it as a drama, examining the angst of living as a supernatural being.

"It turned out great as we can now do an American version," Syfy president Dave Howe says. "We've always been keen on vampires and werewolves, and we loved the originality of 'Being Human,' the fact that the fantastical creatures in it are very young, accessible and charming."

Will you watch? Any fans out there for the BBC version?
