Hulu’s teen supernatural comedy Darby and the Dead gets a poster and trailer

20th Century Studios has released a poster and trailer for Darby and the Dead, the upcoming horror-comedy from director Silas Howard.

The film stars Riele Downs as Darby, a teenager who gains the ability to see dead people following a near death experience and uses it to help counsel the lonely spirits who wonder the Earth with unfinished business. When the most popular girl at her high school dies in a freak accident, the undead diva forces Darby to appease her final wish and throw a Sweet 17 party.

The film stars Riele Downs, Auli’i Cravalho, Chosen Jacobs, Asher Angel, Wayne Knight, Derek Luke and Tony Danza. Check out the trailer below…

After suffering a near-death experience as a young girl, Darby Harper (Downs) gains the ability to see dead people. As a result, she becomes introverted and shut off from her high school peers and prefers to spend time counseling lonely spirits who have unfinished business on earth. But all that changes when Capri (Cravalho), the Queen Bee of the school’s most exclusive clique, unexpectedly dies in a freak hair straightening accident, resulting in the obvious cancellation of her upcoming “Sweet 17.” Capri, however, pleads with Darby from the other side to intervene and convince Capri’s friends to proceed with the party as planned. In order to appease the wrath of the undead diva, Darby must emerge from her self-imposed exile and reinvent herself — which along the way allows her to find new joy back in the land of the living.

Darby and the Dead starts streaming on Hulu on December 2nd.
