BBC BRINGS BEING HUMAN AND LOOK AROUND YOU TO COMIC-CON

- Exclusive screenings, panels, signings and Doctor Who exclusive merchandise -

New York, NY - June 23, 2010 - BBC returns to Comic-Con with a full line-up of panels, screenings, signings and exclusive merchandise at the BBC AMERICA booth (#3629).

BBC AMERICA's hit sci-fi show Being Human, which follows three twenty-somethings living double lives as a werewolf, a vampire and a ghost, returns for an all-new U.S. premiere season the same weekend as Comic-Con. The Los Angeles Times declared, "Buffy fans - come out of the Twilight and sink your teeth into this import." Creator/writer Toby Whithouse will join cast members Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, Aidan Turner and Sinead Keenan on stage for a fan Q&A and signing at the BBC AMERICA booth (#3629). Being Human premieres on BBC AMERICA Saturday, July 24, directly following the Doctor Who season finale. Being Human: Season 1 DVD (DVD/Blu-ray) hits stores on July 20.

Matt Groening calls it "one of the funniest shows I've ever seen." The BAFTA-nominated Look Around You is a spoof comedy based on the unforgettable educational programs of the '70s. Created by and starring Robert Popper (Peep Show, Hot Fuzz) and Peter Serafinowicz (Couples Retreat, Shaun of the Dead), presenters Jack Morgan (Popper) and Peter Packard (Serafinowicz) bring the nonsensical wonders of science and a series of gloriously deadpan experiments to life as the show comes to BBC DVD. Peter and Robert will take fan Q&As at their panel as well as signing at the BBC AMERICA booth (#3629). Look Around You: Season 1 DVD goes on sale July 20.

Doctor Who, which delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA, wraps on air the weekend of Comic-Con. While the team is currently filming and unable to attend Comic-Con, that doesn't mean the Doctor's presence won't be felt in San Diego. BBC AMERICA will host an exclusive U.S. premiere fan screening of this season's two-part finale, along with the all-new season opener of Being Human.

This year marks the first time contemporary Doctor Who exclusives have been available for sale at Comic-Con. Fans can purchase the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) figurine in burgundy shirt and suspenders and an Orange Dalek Scientist figurine as well as two show exclusive t-shirts designed especially for the event. Being Human t-shirts will also be available at the BBC AMERICA booth.
