Bruce Campbell shares Evil Dead TV show details

Bruce Campbell has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about forthcoming Evil Dead TV show, Ash vs. Evil Dead, and has revealed a few key details about what we can expect.

According to the report, the new series will find Ash, “living in a trailer park and working his latest thankless big-box store job when a return of the Deadites prompts him to take a road trip with two young co-workers”.

And according to Campbell, fans worrying about a sanitized-for-TV version of the classic horror franchise are in for quite a surprise…

“We’re going to give people a little of the old fashioned splatstick,” says Campbell. “Horror and comedy. The fans have been really good to us over the years. This is an opportunity to do something with full street cred… Something we’re doing is taking the horror parts very seriously.”

“We’re not making fun of the horror aspects,” he continues. “And it’s going to cause Ash - this crabby middle-aged man who doesn’t want to get dragged back into this - a lot of problems.”

“He’s not the Ash he used to be… And the beauty of Starz is there’s no content issues. Let’s face it: Fans want the carnage and the mayhem. So we intend to give them quite the explosion of viscera. Most of it directed at me, unfortunately.”

Sam Raimi will be directing the show’s pilot, and providing a guiding hand for the rest of the series, which should be quite the treat when it comes to air later in 2015…
