The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Evil Dead comes to TV with Bruce Campbell!

Honey Buzz ~ Evil Dead comes to TV with Bruce Campbell!

It's been bandied about for a little while that an Evil Dead TV adaptation was in the works. After a musical, sequels and a remake/reboot/reimagining, the Starz network has finally ordered an Evil Dead TV show.

Original franchise director Sam Raimi will executive produce the series and will also write and direct the first episode. Fingers crossed that the first episode won't be the best of the series... 

But the best news of all, is that Bruce Campbell will star, reprising his iconic career-making role as Ash. Before you say to yourself, "wait a minute... isn't he... um... old?" tsk tsk tsk fairweather fan! Read on!

The logline: “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.” 
“I’m really excited to bring this series to the Evil Dead fans worldwide — it’s going to be everything they have been clamoring for: serious deadite ass-kicking and plenty of outrageous humor,” Campbell said. 
“Evil Dead has always been a blast,” Raimi said. “Bruce, Rob, and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash’s lame, but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his ‘boomstick,’ Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there’s a truckload of it.” 
The series will air on Starz in 2015.
