Hulu Nabs New Original Series From Lionsgate

Wilfred creators sell 10 half-hours to streaming service

Hulu has ordered 10 episodes of a new scripted supernatural comedy called Deadbeat from Lionsgate, with all episodes directed and exec produced by TV producing vet Troy Miller (credits include Netflix's reboot of Arrested Development, Brand X With Russell Brand and others). Hulu's current slate of originals includes The Awesomes, Quickdraw and the upcoming The Wrong Mans; the buy from Lionsgate seems to indicate enough initial success with The Awesomes to merit further investment.
