Deadline: Ben And Kate alum Echo Kellum is set to co-star in Dead People, the CW drama pilot from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV. Written/executive produced by Tom Kapinos, Dead People centers on Floyd (Andrew J. West), down-on-his-luck, semi-alcoholic but roguishly charming cab driver. After a near-death experience, Floyd suddenly has the ability to interact with ghosts, including his late ex-wife (Alexandra Chando), who he has never gotten over. Kellum plays Floyd’s best friend Doug, a successful attorney who lives with his wife and two children, worries about Floyd and wants to help him in any way he can.
