Evil Dead is one of Bruce Campbell’s most well known roles and one of Sam Raimis greatest cult movies, and with damn good reason. And today we get a teaser for the upcoming Tv series.
In addition to starring, Campbell is executive-producing the show with longtime cohorts Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, plus Craig DiGregorio, who will also serve as showrunner. Raimi is directing the first episode from a script he wrote with Ivan Raimi, DiGregorio and Tom Spezialy. According to Starz, “Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons—personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its ‘Evil’ grip.
