From today’s announcement:
BBC AMERICA is co-producing a new mini-series for Dramaville based on Alan Furst’s acclaimed novel, The Spies of Warsaw, adapted by renowned Emmy®-winning writers Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais. David Tennant (Doctor Who, Fright Night, Hamlet, Casanova) and Janet Montgomery (Black Swan, Entourage) will star in the thrilling spy story set in Poland, Paris, London and Berlin in the years leading up to the Second World War. The mini-series will premiere in the US as part of BBC AMERICA’s Dramaville programming block.
EW: We’re finally going to find out Cutler’s deal. Did the notoriously super-secretive (creator/writer) Toby Whithouse let you in on it from the beginning?
Andrew Gower: I was told that Cutler was a solicitor. But we even had to keep a bit of his backstory a secret from the rest of the cast. I knew that he wasn’t your conventional vampire, and that he was obsessed with bringing vampires into the 21st century. And then later on, I found out the big twist and exactly why he is as he is. It was quite a big surprise for me when I did find out. I was a bit like, “Ooh, that is nice.”
Toby Whithouse to Serve Up Season Five of BEING HUMAN for BBC AMERICA
Announced this morning, BBC AMERICA’s hit Supernatural Saturday series BEING HUMAN has been commissioned for a Fifth Season. The current season is airing now on BBC AMERICA and S5 will premiere next year on both BBC AMERICA and BBC Three in the UK.
From today’s press release:
Toby Whithouse, creator and executive producer, is keeping plans closely under wraps but can confirm that werewolf Tom (Michael Socha) and vampire Hal (Damien Molony) will return. He says: “Being Human lives on! The response to series 4 has been terrific. We’re thrilled that the audience have taken the new cast into their hearts with such enthusiasm and affection. We’re delighted to have this opportunity to expand the world further and explore new characters and tell new stories. A heartfelt thank you to all the fans for their unstinting support, and to the BBC for letting us mess up the sandpit for a fifth year.”
BBC AMERICA’s SVP of Programming, Richard De Croce, commented: “The original hit Being Human series has been a staple of BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday programming block. We’re excited to present the series’ loyal fans with a fifth season and to continue working with the series’ cast and extraordinarily talented creator Toby Whithouse, who clearly is fast becoming one of the biggest names in sci-fi television.”
