You guys, sometimes I forget that Cat Deeley isn’t a dancer.
I mean, she looks like she could be one, right? And she hangs out with dancers all the time on “So You Think You Can Dance.” (Apparently she’s friends with them off-camera, too—her Fourth of July barbecues for the “SYTYCD” family are the stuff of legend).
For those reasons, and because of her general delightfulness, I figured you’d all be excited to hear this not-officially-dance news: Cat has signed on to co-star in a Hulu “supernatural comedy series” called “Deadbeat”!
What is a supernatural comedy series, you ask? That’s kind of unclear. But apparently Cat will play Camomile White, a celebrity medium who “has a public persona as America’s Supernatural Sweetheart but behind the scenes is a manipulative, aggressive businesswoman.” Sounds spicy.
Congrats to Cat on her big acting role! The series is currently in production in NYC—we’ll let you know when we hear about a premiere date (and/or if we run into her on the street, which…fingers crossed).
