Hulu's 'Deadbeat': See three vintage horror trailers for the comedy
Hulu is amping up its original programming game with a new bingeworthy series, set to premiere in its entirety on the web April 9.
The show is Deadbeat, a quirky supernatural comedy that follows Kevin (Tyler Labine), described as “a hapless medium who will do anything to finish New York City ghosts’ unfinished business.”
Joining Labine (a breakout on The CW’s Reaper, also a supernatural comedy) are Tropic Thunder’s Brandon T. Jackson, Melissa & Joey’s Lucy Devito, and So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley making her scripted comedy debut as a celeb psychic named Camomile. The series comes from co-creators Cody Heller and Brett Konner (FX’s Wilfred) and Troy Miller (Arrested Development).
Deadbeat will make its world premiere at SXSW on March 11. Until then, EW’s got your exclusive first look at a trio of trailers themed around various major moments for the horror genre — particularly the 1940s, ‘70s, and ‘80s. The trailers are a nod to the sort of genre fans Hulu hopes to grab on April 9 when the series debuts.
