Undoubtedly winking at the calendar, this morning Tyler Labine and Kal Penn announced the third season of the Deadbeat TV series will premiere April 20, 2016, on Hulu. Of course, given this is Deadbeat, the date is referenced as “4/20.” Watch a teaser, below. Fans still fondly recall Labine’s turn as Burt Wysocki or “Sock” on Reaper, which was cancelled by The CW after two seasons and a total of 31 episodes.
In Deadbeat Labine is slacker Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu. Kal Penn plays Clyde Shapiro, a stoner entrepreneur. The supernatural comedy is executive produced by showrunner Dan Lagana, Cody Heller, Brett Konner, and Plan B’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. Co-executive producers are Sarah Esberg and David Baldy.
Here’s more, from Hulu:
Deadbeat season three follows Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu (Tyler Labine) as a lazy, overweight slacker who can see ghosts. Needing to make a fresh start after losing both his ghost girlfriend and best friend/drug dealer, Pac moves into the apartment of a “stoner entrepreneur” Clyde Shapiro (Kal Penn), an equally aimless Brooklynite who Pac meets in jail. When Clyde learns about how Pac is able to help send ghosts into the Light by resolving their unfinished issues, he excitedly offers to help Pac monetize his gift by going into business with him.
Created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner (Wilfred, The Inbetweeners), “Deadbeat” is produced by Lionsgate Television in association with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment and Dakota Pictures. The supernatural comedy is executive produced by showrunner Dan Lagana (Good Vibes, Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous), Cody Heller, Brett Konner and Plan B’s Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner. Co-executive producers are Sarah Esberg and David Baldy.
Watch the teaser.
