Review: Deadbeat is Frighteners-like Fun Minus the Scares

11 April 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Nearly a year ago, Netflix put out it’s first (of hopefully) many original horror titles with Hemlock Grove. While it was received with much polarity, Hulu is now gracing us with their own original genre title Deadbeat and it is a whole different animal. Deadbeat is a multi-camera horror comedy from Cody Heller and Brett Konner, two of the main writers of the FX dark comedy Wilfred. The ten episode series tells the story of Kevin Pacalioglu (or Pac), played by Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Reaper), a stoner medium who is consistently behind on his rent and best friends with his drug dealer, conveniently named Roofie (Brandon T. Jackson). The central plot of the show focuses on Pacalioglu discovering that his long time crush and rumored celebrity medium Camomile White (played by Cat Deeley) is a fraud and the fallout from the discovery.

Hulu Original Series Boss Charlotte Koh Departs Amid Shake-Up

9 April 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Charlotte Koh, head of content development at Hulu Originals, has departed the streaming company. The move comes just more than a week after Hulu hired seasoned TV development executive Craig Erwich. The former president of Warner Horizon was tapped as Svp and head of content March 31, tasked with leading the content and programming strategy for Hulu and Hulu Plus as one of the first major hires by new CEO Mike Hopkins. That move apparently made things more crowded with Koh, who helped launch Hulu originals like animated The Awesomes (renewed for Season 2 to air this summer), comedy The Wrong Mans and docu-series Behind The Mask. (Koh unveiled 17 original series on tap for 2014 in a January blog post.) But that push came at a time when Netflix and Amazon made major strides establishing slates of network-quality comedy and drama series, and the hiring of Erwich signaled Hulu’s intention to become »

Hulu's Deadbeat: Ghosts, Drugs and a Naughty Cat Deeley

9 April 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

Hulu's new original comedy series Deadbeat is both familiar and different at the same time. 

Although the show features a typical TV conceit — a protagonist has one amazing skill, but the rest of his life is a disaster — when you add in ghosts and a large quantity of controlled substances, you get something you'd be hard pressed to ever find on your TV dial. 

Spring Preview: Check out all the must-see new shows

The series, created by Wilfred writers Cody Heller and Brett Konner, stars Reaper's Tyler Labine as Kevin "Pac Man" Pacalioglu, a stoner medium who helps ghosts resolve their unfinished business so they can move on to the afterlife...

Cat Deeley On New “Sytycd” Season and Her Bitchy Side On “Deadbeat”

9 April 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

While it’s barely feeling like Spring in many areas, some of your favorite shows are already preparing for the summer TV season. Leading the pack, of course, is Fox’s long-running dance competition series, So You Think You Can Dance. The show is currently holding dance auditions all over the country in preparation for the launch of season 11 on May 28th.

Auditions came to Southern California recently so TheBacklot was up bright and early on a Sunday morning to hit The Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles to talk with everyone’s favorite host, Cat Deeley, as well as last season’s male winner, Du-Shant “Fik-Shun” Stegall.

Deeley had more to talk about than just the auditions, however, as she’s taken on a scripted role that gets to show off a creative, bitchy side we don’t see too often on Sytycd. As fake medium Camomile White in »

Hulu’s ‘Deadbeat’ Is Catered To The Binge-Watching Crowd

9 April 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has released Deadbeat, its first scripted original series of 2014. The ten-episode comedy about a slacker who works as a medium has been released in its entirety on the Hulu Plus subscription platform. Deadbeat stars Tyler Labine as Kevin, who has the ability to commune with spiritual beings. This premise is similar to Ghost Ghirls, Yahoo Screen's paranormal comedy, but while that series' protagonists are dumb, imperceptive, and self-absorbed, Kevin's fatal flaws are his laziness, slovenly appearance, and lack of self-confidence. Most of Kevin's jobs are low-maintenance, matching his personality. He's not trying to fight discordant spirits or fend off Gozer. Instead, in the first episode, he helps a deceased soldier lose his virginity. The best news is that Deadbeat is pretty good. It won't blow anyone away, but it's definitely better than Mother Up!, consistently funnier than The Awesomes, and is on the whole one of the better original series Hulu has distributed. »

'Deadbeat' Review: Tyler Labine and Cat Deeley's New Hulu Comedy is on Life Support

9 April 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

On Hulu's latest original scripted program Deadbeat, Tyler Labine plays Kevin "Pac" Pacalioglu, a medium who helps ghosts deal with unfinished business that keeps them roaming (mostly unseen) among the living. This is Labine's second supernatural series, having played the stereotypical comedic comic relief best friend/sidekick on Reaper. Think a much pudgier Stiles (Teen Wolf). Now Labine is the leading man on a 22 minute comedic take on the incredibly trendy genre saturating current programming.

Unlike the melodrama Ghost Whisperer, Deadbeat keeps its storylines pretty simple. After seven episodes, none of the characters are any more developed than in the pilot, although some of Pac's idiosyncrasies become more recognizable. »

Review: Hulu’s ‘Deadbeat,’ Netflix’s ‘Short Poppies’

31 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Similar in tone to the late lamented “Pushing Daisies,” “Deadbeat” promotes Tyler Labine from the sidekick role he’s seemingly played in a half-dozen shows — including the cult favorite “Reaper” — to leading man. However familiar, this Hulu original series is also disarmingly funny, conjuring quirky moments as it channels the comedic side of “Ghost.” In this week’s digital showdown, it also happens to tower above “Short Poppies,” a Netflix acquisition from New Zealand that essentially serves as a showcase for “Flight of the Conchords’ ” Rhys Darby, but feels like another mockumentary rehash from the Chris Lilley school of role-playing shtick.

Labine’s Kevin can see and communicate with the dead, specializing in “finishing unfinished business” — that is, allowing the uneasily departed to conclude some unresolved matter so they can move on into the light.

Unfortunately, he hasn’t quite determined how to cash in on this power, instead sitting »

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil Sequel Underway

31 March 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Exciting news for fans of low-budget, high-concept comedy lunacy with word that a Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil sequel is in the works. According to Guardian Liberty Voice, the second helping of the 2010 mock-horror will reunite Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine for more accidental mayhem and woodchipping.Shooting somewhere in a dark forest near you – or possibly moving to the big city – T&D2 will follow on from the tale of two well-meaning rural folk, Tucker (Tudyk) and Dale (Labine), who head to the mountains for a few days cabin-time. A visiting bunch of college kids assume the pair are psychotic hillbillies when one of their number disappears, unwittingly setting in train a violent course of events in which many people die, all entirely by accident. Think the Unevil Dead or Friendly Cabin In The Woods.It barely made a splash in cinemas but has flourished since on download, DVD and other formats. »

‘Cottage Country’ Review

28 March 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tyler LabineMalin Akerman, Lucy Punch, Dan Petronijevic, Benjamin Ayres, Kenneth Welsh, Nancy Beatty, Jonathan Crombie, Sabrina Grdevich, Jim Annan | Written by Jeremy Boxen | Directed by Peter Wellington

I was doing what many customers of Netflix do, browsing the catalogue of films on offer with a far-away look in my eye, unable to choose what to watch as the evening got later and later. As a fan of Tyler Labine from his work in Tucker and Dale versus Evil, I decided to give this movie a shot.

Also starring Malin Akerman (27 Dresses, Rock of Ages), Cottage Country is a comedy movie with elements of thriller, horror and romance, and is directed by Peter Wellington, who, from what I can tell, has only really been responsible for a few television movies, and random episodes of television shows I know little to nothing about.

'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil 2'! One of the Best Horror Comedies Around Is Getting a Sequel

26 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Get ready for a return trip to a cabin in the woods as one of horror cinema’s most recent cult classics is getting a sequel. That’s right – Tucker and Dale vs. Evil 2 is in development! The original film found Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk playing a couple of good-natured rednecks who become embroiled in some hilariously gory hijinks when a group of young adults mistake them for cannibalistic backwoods murderers. Now, it appears that the duo will be reprising their roles in a sequel – so the blood and laughs can’t be far behind. The duo revealed the good news at last weekend’s Horrorhound convention in Cincinnati, Ohio. Labine and Tudyk have long been in favor of making a sequel to the first film, but feared they’d never get the...

Tucker And Dale Vs a new kind of Evil

26 March 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Here's some great news for fans of horror comedy. Actors Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine have revealed that the producers are currently looking to get started on a sequel to their 2010 classic Tucker & Dale Vs Evil. It's been on the cards ever since the first film was released and the sooner it arrives the better. While we await further news, let's take a look back at the first movie; Twenty years on from the day of the Memorial Day Massacre a group of college kids venture out into the woods for a camping vacation, only for one of them to get kidnapped by a pair of murderous hillbillies intent on killing everything in their path. So far so unoriginal. Only, this time, the hillbillies in question are Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), two best friends taking a break at their dilapidated mountain house.

Tucker And Dale Vs Evil 2 Finally Enters Development!

25 March 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As a horror fan, I find that movies blending humor with scares and gore always incite a bit of a cringe, but when done properly, horror comedies are a hell of a good time. There’s a reason why my favorite subgenre of horror happens to be its comedic offshoot, just like there’s a reason why Tucker And Dale Vs Evil is one of the funniest horror comedies to be released in the last few years. A sequel was immediately teased, rumors ran rampant, and I even tried to put the squeeze on Tyler Labine when I interviewed him for Best Man Down, but all was quiet surrounding our misunderstood yokels – until now.

Speaking this past week at Horrorhound in Cincinnati, Alan Tudyk and Labine finally confirmed that Tucker and Dale Vs Evil 2 has entered development. While there was skepticism over whether or not a sequel would ever come to fruition, »
