BBC Three commissions 'Being Human' series

According to celebrity and media site Digital Spy, BBC Three has ordered a six-part series of comedy drama Being Human.

A pilot of the comedic show - in which a werewolf, vampire and ghost share a flat - performed well for the channel in February.

Filming with stars Russell Tovey, Andrea Riseborough and Guy Flanaghan will start later this year for transmission in 2009.

Executive producer Rob Pursey, of Touchpaper Television, said: "The pilot of Being Human gave us the opportunity to try something really unusual, and we were quite overwhelmed by the positive public response. So we’re delighted that the BBC has given us the go-ahead for a full series."

Danny Cohen, controller of BBC Three, added: "Of all our recent drama experiments on BBC Three, Being Human struck the most powerful chord with the audience.

Definitely a win for the Tovey, there.
