The supernatural comedy centers on Kevin Pacalioglu (Labine), a hapless but gifted medium who will go to any lengths to help New York’s ghosts settle their unfinished business. Penn will play Clyde, stoner entrepreneur extraordinaire and all-around good dude, who becomes Pac’s business partner.

Industry Entertainment-repped Penn will next be seen in feature Stereotypically You.
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.
