Hulu has given ten-episode series order to the supernatural half-hour comedy “Deadbeat” from Lionsgate and Plan B.
The story centers on a hapless but gifted male medium who helps New York’s ghosts settle their unfinished business.
“Wilfred” co-creators Cody Heller and Brett Konner are behind the series which Troy Miller (“Flight Of The Conchords”) will direct and executive produce.
Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Sarah Esberg will also produce. Production begins this Fall ahead of an airing on Hulu and Hulu+ sometime next year.
