Evil Dead TV Series Coming To Starz

(PCM) Fans of cult horror comedy film franchise Evil Dead were thrilled with the recent announcement that Starz has green lit a new original series titled “Ash vs. Evil Dead” that will be a follow-up to the films.

The director of the original Evil Dead film Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and of course star Bruce Campbell will be making a return for the new series. Currently, “Ash vs. Evil Dead” is slated for a 10 episode half hour time spot and will premiere sometime in 2015.

It has been several years since Raimi and Tapert have worked with Starz on Spartacus and all seem eager to be working together again. Raimi had revealed plans back at Comic Con to continue the Evil Dead franchise with television rather than additional films, so it is wonderful to see this project come to fruition.

The brief synopsis for the upcoming series says 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.

Raimi will direct the first episode of “Ash vs. Evil Dead”, which he co-wrote with his brother Ivan Raimi (Darkman) and Tom Spezialy (Chuck).
