Syfy's 'Being Human' more 'gritty' than 'Twilight'?

Press tour critics want to know: Syfy’s new supernatural drama Being Human is about a vampire, a werewolf and a girl … soooo did that give producers a moment of pause? Since the show might strongly remind everybody of a certain other title?

“Not a moment of pause in that way — if we’re talking between the lines to each other,” said executive producer Jeremy Carver about the remake of the Brit hit, which premieres Monday night. “What we love about the show is how grounded it is. It’s set in an urban environments. Our characters are all living double lives. There’s a certain grittiness due to the realism to the show that peels off our show from competitors.”

Plus, in Being Human, the girl is a ghost, so there’s that.
