Canadian streaming service CraveTV will begin streaming the second season of supernatural comedy series Deadbeat today, the same day it makes its debut on Hulu in the United States. While Hulu broadcast the first season of the show in 2014, Canadians (with access to Bell Media’s Crave TV) were able to watch the first 10 episodes when they were made available earlier this month.
Deadbeat stars Canadian actor Tyler Labine (Jimmy to all you Breaker High fans) as slacker medium for hire Pacalioglu. The concept is pretty simple. “Pac” attempts to solve the unresolved issues of the various ghosts in order for them to move on and find peace, making some profit along the way when getting hired by the humans who occupy the space that the ghosts are restless in.
British television presenter Kat Deeley also stars as faux medium Camomile White along with Brandon T. Jackson as Roofie (Pac’s drug dealer and one real friend) and Lucy DeVito (daughter of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman) as Camomile’s assistant.
Produced by Lionsgate and Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, the series is created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner (Wildred, The Inbetweeners).
Guest stars in the first season include Saturday Night Live’s Darrell Hammond, American Pie’s Jason Biggs and Ray Wise (Labine and Wise previously starred together on Reaper). Guest stars for the 13-episode second season will include James Franco, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi, Finn Wittrock and Danny DeVito.
