Remember that Syfy Americanized version of Being Human we told you about last October? Well, it turns out the series, about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost who end up as roommates, is one step closer to your TV screen.

Mark Stern, Syfy's EVP for Original Programming, revealed the names of the show's writers at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour—husband-and-wife duo Jeremy Carver (Supernatural) and Anna Fricke (The CW's Privileged).

"[He's] kind of got the genre cred, and Anna comes out of a more character-based drama world, so between them they'll be really interesting," Stern told The Futon Critic. Stern also indicated that he hoped the series would be ready for a summer launch.

Syfy has ordered 13 episodes of the new series.
