The Sixth Sense's Cole Sear isn't the only character with the ability to see dead people. Kevin Pacalioglu, the main character of Hulu's supernatural comedy series Deadbeat, not only chats with ghosts, but also attempts to fulfill their final wishes on earth, resulting in some hilarious and bizarre encounters with both the living and the dead. Starring Tucker & Dale vs. Evil's Tyler Labine, season one of Deadbeat is coming soon to DVD and digital from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

You can laugh your way through Kevin's paranormal predicaments from the comfort of your couch starting on August 26th, when Deadbeat hits the shelves on DVD and digital. In April, Hulu renewed Deadbeat for a second season. We have the DVD's special features and Hulu's official Deadbeat trailer for you to check out:

Press Release - "The supernatural comedy series Deadbeat arrives on DVD (plus Digital) August 26 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Starring Tyler Labine (TV's "Reaper")the show also features Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder), Lucy DeVito (TV's "Melissa & Joey)and Cat Deeley (the host of TV's "So You Think You Can Dance"). From the production company that produced 12 Years a Slave and Kick-Ass, Deadbeat has been declared a "disarmingly funny" (Variety) and "hilarious and heartwarming" (New York Post) comedy. Available exclusively at Target, the Deadbeat DVD includes three bonus featurettes and is available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

Kevin Pacalioglu (Labine) may have no money and no clue, but he can see dead people, so that's pretty cool. Faced with a constant stream of stubborn spirits, Pac goes to whatever lengths require the least amount of effort to help New York City's most frivolous ghosts finish their unfinished business.
