The makers of Being Human are reportedly putting together a new superheroes drama for BBC1.

According to SFX the creator of the cult BBC3 drama Toby Whithouse and producer Matthew Bouch are currently prepping Orphans, a drama about people with superpowers.

This may sound an awful lot like Heroes, but it seems that as a BBC production, bosses will follow the example set by Being Human and place emphasis on more character driven aspects of the show.

If made, the series will be the first production of Scoundrel, the pair’s new production company. However other sources seem very confident that the idea will get the green light and some have indictaed that a six series timeline is already under construction.

“The world Orphans takes place in is unlike anything you’ll have seen before,” said Whithouse. “It’s not even the world of Being Human. Trust me. You’ll love it. If it gets made.”
