All titles will air in the channel's Supernatural Saturday line up.

· BBC AMERICA is co-producing the new season of the UK original Being Human. The hit sci-fi show is back for an all-new Season 4 (8 x 60).

Created and written by Ben Richards and shot in South Africa, the series takes viewers into a new world as it explores survival, sex, politics and the drive for power in a new post-Earth era. The Executive Producers are Jane Featherstone, Simon Crawford-Collins and Faith Penhale for Kudos and Matthew Read for the BBC. Outcasts premieres Saturday, June 18, 9:00pm ET/PT.

· Bedlam (6 x 60), a co-production of BBC AMERICA and Red Productions (Queer as Folk), stars singer and actor Will Young (Pop Idol winner, Skins), Charlotte Salt (The Tudors) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey). It is written by Neil Jones, David Allison and Chris Parker, the Executive Producer is Nicola Schindler for Red Productions. Set in Bedlam Heights - an apartment building converted from a pre-Victorian lunatic asylum - the inhabitants experience the darker side of the building's history when former asylum spirits come back to claim what they believe to be theirs and seek revenge on those who have wronged them. Bedlam premieres Saturday, October 8, 9:00pm ET/PT.
