The announcement that STARZ has ordered an Evil Dead TV series to star “Groovy Bruce” Bruce Campbell, the original and one and only Ash Williams, is the stuff of April Fools’ Day, AND IT’S NOT APRIL!
You bet your BOOMSTICK we’re excited.
The facts: STARZ has ordered 10 episodes, straight to series, with OGs Bruce Campbell starring and Sam Raimi executive producing as well as writing/directing the pilot which is set to air in 2015.
“Bruce 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.”
