Another show that looks mighty interesting that is coming to BBC America is Demons which will premier on Saturday, January 2nd at 10/9c with the following episodes airing Saturdays at 9/8c. The shows theme is something familiar from what I can gather from the press release and the about page in BBC America (below), A teenage boy that is related to Abraham Van Helsing has a destiny to fulfill and become a warrior against the dark forces. Reminds me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer a bit but with a little darker tone.
From BBC America’s press release:
The battle against the dark underworld of half-lives, monsters and in-humans lie deep beneath the streets of modern-day London in the U.S. premiere of Demons. This contemporary spin on the character of Van Helsing features Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) as an average teenager, but with the arrival of his dead father’s best friend Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister), Luke’s life is about to be flipped upside down. Galvin is a straight-talking, headstrong American who has come to tell Luke his secret destiny – he’s the real-life great-great grandson of Abraham Van Helsing, the vampire hunter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Luke’s destined to inherit the family mantle as a warrior in the coldest of cold wars against the supernatural entities behind every myth and legend from vampires to werewolves and all things that go bump in the night.
About the show
(See BBC America for more on the show )
On the surface Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) is every bit the average teenager, but with the arrival of his dead father’s best friend Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister), Luke’s life is about to change. Galvin has come to inform Luke that his father’s death fifteen years ago wasn’t an accident, and that he holds a secret destiny as the great-great grandson of Abraham Van Helsing, the vampire hunter in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Now Luke must carry the torch and do battle against the inhumans and the freaks that walk among us, but he must keep it all hidden and maintain his normal life as a son and a student.
