A haunted young man must decide whether he’s mentally ill or can really see ghosts when his recently deceased best friend asks for help solving his murder.

Setting up a mystery of the week, the Dead End Job pilot opens as Brandon Bryant attends his best friend Seth's funeral. He's furtive and nervous, trying not to lose his shit. He keeps talking to someone we can't see... Then Brandon finally looks over and we see the mutilated ghost of Seth. Brandon loses it and bolts. What follows is his struggle to hold on to his normal life and manage his mental illness... with Seth ever more insistent that he's real and needs Brandon's help.
