BBC America Developing Original Crime Drama, The Dead Beat

BBC America

BBC America announced today that it is developing two new original series, one a paranormal crime drama.

According to the press release, "In The Dead Beat, two cops, one dead and one alive, become a reluctant team, working from leads in the world of the dead to track down killers in the world of the living. Subverting the crime genre, The Dead Beat brings a whole new meaning to cold cases, underworld informants, dead leads and buried evidence."

The other series is Wired, set in a world of "syns", synthetic organisms that are exact replicas of human beings.

"Supernatural Saturday has become a popular fixture on BBC America's schedule," said Perry Simon, General Manager, BBC America. "[B]oth these highly creative ideas add a new dimension to our programming."
