Hulu has rounded out its cast for its upcoming supernatural comedy, “Deadbeat.”

“Percy Jackson” movie franchise star Brandon T. Jackson and ABC Family’s “Melissa & Joey” actress Lucy DeVito have joined the series, which started production in New York City on Tuesday.

They join star Tyler Labine (“Reaper,” “Boston Legal,” “Animal Practice”), who plays Kevin Pacalioglu, a hapless but gifted medium who will go to any lengths to help New York’s ghosts settle their unfinished business.

Jackson will play Kevin’s best (and only) friend, Roofie while DeVito is Camomile’s loyal assistant, Sue.

And as TheWrap reported first earlier this week, “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley plays Kevin’s rival, nemesis and possible love interest, Camomile White, a glamorous celebrity medium.

Executive producers Brett Konner and Cody Heller (“Wilfred”) are writing the series, which will be directed by exec producer Troy Miller (“Arrested Development”). Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are exec producing for Brad Pitt‘s Plan B.
