Bruce Campbell is back and slaying Deadites in ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, the Starz original series spinning off from the classic film franchise. A new piece of teaser art and accompanying motion graphic can be seen past the jump!
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.
“The cast also includes Lucy Lawless [SALEM, SPARTACUS] as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks, Jill Marie Jones [SLEEPY HOLLOW] as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan state trooper set to find our antihero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner, Ray Santiago as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick, and Dana DeLorenzo as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.” ASH VS. EVIL DEAD will premiere this fall.
