It doesn’t matter if Angelina Jolie is the highest paid actress, because Brad Pitt won’t be overshadowed by his leading lady. Pitt’s company, Plan B Entertainment, is teaming up with Hulu and Lionsgate to produce 10 episodes of “Deadbeat,” a supernatural series about a gifted New York medium that helps ghosts with unfinished business. It’s nice to know there’s an upcoming supernatural show that’s not just about vampires, werewolves, and humans dating each other.

There’s currently no release date or spoilers, but Hulu’s head of development, Charlotte Koh teased, “On behalf of the Hulu team, we are very proud to be working with Cody, Brett, Troy, and the talented executives of Lionsgate and Plan B on this uniquely funny and imaginative show,” she said. “‘Deadbeat’ is a welcome addition to our growing slate of smart, distinctive original programming.”

Hulu will broadcast “Deadbeat” to its American subscribers sometime in 2014, while Lionsgate will air it internationally.
