‘Ghost Whisperer’ Kevin Pacalioglu (Tyler Labine-Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Sons of Tucson) is back! The quirky but charming stoner medium returns for the third season of this Hulu Original series created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner. Premiering for the second year in a row on April 20th, which is a deliberate nod to its devoted slacker fan base (4/20).
If you haven’t seen Deadbeat yet the plot is actually quite simple. Sixth Sense meets Half Baked. Actor Tyler Labine plays a medium that makes a meager living performing favors for the dead who still have unfinished business. His best friend/drug dealer convinces him to monetize his gift, but during this process makes an enemy of another psychic, the famous Camomile White. Camomile White, who is in reality a fraud, sets out on a mission to destroy him when she learns of his very real abilities.
Even more exciting, Labine will be joined by Harold and Kumar co-star Kal Penn this season. Penn has seemed to have had an on again off again relationship with acting since accepting a position with the Obama administration as an Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement in 2009 and later (2011) as Associate Director. This news, amid rumors of a star-studded list of special guest appearances from James Franco, Danny DeVito, and Gilbert Gottfried, should make for a fantastic third season. DeVito’s Daughter, Lucy Chet DeVito, had a regular part on the show for the first two seasons as Camomile’s timid and devoted P.A., and later Pacalioglu’s assistant and ghostly girlfriend. It will certainly be interesting to see dear old dad involved in the newest season.
