One week, two renewals! Muse Entertainment’s wartime drama Bomb Girls and the supernatural hit Being Human, have both been re-ordered this week by networks for brand new seasons.

“Our success is not stopping with The Kennedys,” says Muse President Michael Prupas. “These high caliber series have superb acting talent, inspired storylines and first-class production design. The shows’ audiences are committed and captivated. The networks appreciate that.”
