After 30 years of avoiding the terrors of the Deadites, along with maturity and responsibility, the impressively-chinned Bruce Campbell will be hitting the small screen in the brand new Starz TV series, Ash Vs Evil Dead.
Once again wielding his trademark shotgun and chainsaw, Ash, once again portrayed by Campbell, is finally forced to face his personal and literal demons when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy mankind – and destiny has no plans to keep Ash and the Deadites separate for too long.
Joining Campbell in taking on the undead hordes are Lucy Lawless (Xena Warrior Princess, Spartacus) as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash to be the source of the Deadite outbreak, Jill Marie Jones (Sleepy Hollow) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper who believes Ash to be responsible for her partner’s murder, and Ray Santiago (Meet The Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s new sidekick.
Producer of the original Evil Dead trilogy, Sam Raimi, will return to produce the first episode of this ten-episode series, with each episode being half an hour long. He will also serve as executive producer for the series alongside Rob Tapert (Spartacus, Evil Dead, Xena Warrior Princess) and Bruce Campbell himself.
