Hulu Renews Paranormal Comedy ‘Deadbeat’ For Third Season

26 May 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has given the green light for another season of one of its original series. The streaming video platform renewed the paranormal comedy Deadbeat, starring Tyler Labine, for a third season.

Deadbeat centers around the laid-back, pot-smoking Kevin (Labine), who has the ability to commune with ghosts and spirits. Unlike most supernatural-themed series, Deadbeat doesn’t throw Kevin into an eternal battle with the other-worldly beings. Instead, Labine’s character serves as a medium who helps ghosts finish what they couldn’t accomplish in life, like getting laid.

Deadbeat is a uniquely imaginative and charming series,” said Craig Erwich, Hulu’s Senior Vice President and Head of Content, in a release. “We are very happy to bring it back for another hilarious season and look forward to sharing new ghostly stories.”

Hulu released the first season of Deadbeat back in April 2014, with eight of the ten episodes available exclusively on Hulu Plus. »

8 Things You Can Learn About Ghosts From Hulu Series Deadbeat

13 May 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Lately I've been pretty obsessed with Hulu's original series Deadbeat. The second season just dropped, and it's pretty great. The show is a comedic series that follows a lazy slacker medium, Kevin Pacalioglu (played by the charming Tyler Labine), who tries to solve ghosts' unfinished business so they can go to their final resting place. Prior to this show, my ghost knowledge was pretty limited; I knew that Casper was friendly and that Haley Joel Osment saw dead people, but that was about it. Deadbeat brings a whole new perspective and sense of humor to the afterlife. With each episode, I found myself learning more about the undead. Such as: »

Hulu Sets April 20 Release Date For ‘Deadbeat’ Season Two

5 March 2015 12:21 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has more stories to tell about an apathetic New York City dude who sees ghosts. The streaming video platform announced its original supernatural comedy series Deadbeat will return for a second season on April 20, 2015.

Deadbeat features Kevin (played by Tyler Labine), a medium who is competent at helping ghosts complete their unfinished business but utterly incapable of making his own life better. Season two will include special guest stars James Franco (who just signed on to star in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of a Stephen King novel), Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Zach Levi, Gilbert Gottfried, Finn Wittrock, and Jim Norton.

When Deadbeat debuted back in April 2014, we noted how Kevin’s lazy behavior and appearance appeals to the binge-watching, pot-smoking crowd. It seems appropriate, then, that Hulu has opted to release Deadbeat season two on 4/20, a day renowned for marijuana smoking. The teaser and key art »

James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen & More Guest Starring on Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2, Teaser Video Revealed

5 March 2015 10:30 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, but on the plus side, he has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series that debuted last year with a stellar 10-episode season. Channeling his excellent horror comedy performances in Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Reaper, Labine makes for a delightfully unconventional ghost whisperer who will be joined by an interesting lineup of guest stars in the sophomore season that's slated to premiere in April.

Deadline reports that James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock play guest starring roles in Deadbeat’s second season. TVLine revealed in January that Levi plays the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the ninth episode of season two, but it's uncertain at this time who the other guest actors play, though you can »

CBS has ordered a drama pilot based on the “Rush Hour” action pic franchise starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker.

The Warner Bros. TV pilot was written by comedy vets Bill Lawrence and Blake McCormick. “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian are exec producing with Lawrence, McCormick and Jeff Ingold of Lawrence’s Doozer Prods. banner.

With comedy writers at the helm CBS’ spin on “Rush Hour” is sure to keep to the comedic tone of the original 1998 New Line feature about a stoic Hong Kong police officer assigned to work a case in Los Angeles with a cocky local cop who has no interest in a partner. The success of the first installment spawned “Rush Hour 2″ in 2001 and “Rush Hour 3″ in 2007.

CBS’ has dabbled in similar waters before. Two years ago it won the bidding for a new incarnation of “Beverly Hills Cop” produced »
