August 26, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — Starz presents “Ash vs. The Evil Dead” and star Bruce Campbell returns in the title role he made famous in Sam Raimi’s original 1981 horror film.
In the new series, Ash has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the ‘Evil Dead’ until a ‘Deadite’ plague threatens to destroy all of mankind and Ash becomes mankind’s only hope.
Raimi also returns as executive producer of the 10-episode half-hour series that premieres later this fall. Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, and Jill Marie Jones join the cast for the latest supernatural adventure.
The series is executive produced by Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, the trio who originally produced the first film.
The new series premieres on Starz Halloween night, October 31.
