Lost Girl follows supernatural seductress Bo, a Succubus who feeds on the sexual energy of humans. Growing up with human parents, Bo had no reason to believe she was anything other than the girl next door — until she drained her boyfriend to death in their first sexual encounter. Now she has hit the road alone and afraid. She discovers she is one of the Fae, creatures of legend and folklore, who pass as humans while feeding off them secretly and in different ways, as they have for millennia. Relieved yet horrified to find out that she is not alone, Bo decides to take the middle path between the humans and the Fae while embarking on a personal mission to unlock the secrets of her origin.
Bo’s succubus nature tangles her in a sexy, romantic love-triangle with Dyson, a shape-shifting homicide detective, and Lauren, a human doctor who has found a way through science to help give Bo the sexual self-control she’s been aching for.
With the help of her human sidekick, Kenzi, and Dyson, a sexy police detective, Bo takes on a challenge every week helping a Fae or human client who comes to her to solve a mystery, or to right a wrong.

Who is behind it?
The series is developed and produced by Prodigy Pictures. The executive producers are Jay Firestone, Paul Rapovksi, Plato Fountidakis, Michelle Lovretta and Peter Mohan. Michelle Lovretta is also the Creator/Writer for the series and the series is also co-written by Peter Mohan. The series producer is Wanda Chaffey.
“Our intention with this project is to create a new generation of female action hero – one which fuses strength with sexuality and passion with intelligence,” says Jay Firestone, Executive Producer.
Written by Michelle Lovretta (Mutant X, Fat Like Me) and directed by John Fawcett (The Border, Ginger Snaps), “Lost Girl” boasts a creative team with a reputation for taking viewers to the edge with hard-hitting action, fantasy and adrenaline-filled storylines.
Another supernatural show with nudity and sex is my first thoughts but I can live with that. The concept sounds interesting with a Succubus and the Fae but this in-between kind of detective series have been done before with various degrees of success. Blood Ties where Peter Mohan was Executive Producer comes to mind. It was cheesy but had a certain appeal.
The crew and cast make this look like Mutant X the reunion. Cheesy with sex and nudity, count me in. The only drawback is that it airs on Sundays a day already filled with supernatural wickedness.
