Hulu Orders Scripted Original Series ‘Deadbeat’ from Lionsgate

Comedy set to bow in 2014

Hulu has ordered a 10-episode original series from Lionsgate, the companies announced Tuesday.

From co-creators Cody Heller and Brett Konner (“Wilfred,” “The Inbetweeners”), “Deadbeat” will be part of Hulu’s 2014 slate and will be produced by Dakota Pictures and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.  The comedy centers on a hapless but gifted male medium who helps New York’s ghosts settle their unfinished business.

This is the first such co-production between Hulu and Lionsgate. Production begins in the fall.
