Starz has debuted the first teaser for "Ash vs Evil Dead,' the upcoming television sequel to the cult-favorite horror films.
Bruce Campbell reprises his role as Ash Williams, an aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who's spent the last three decades avoiding maturity, and the terrors of the Evil Dead. But when a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, he's forced to face his demons -- both metaphorical and literal.
He's joined by Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks; Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Amanda Fisher, a disgraced Michigan State Trooper set to find our anti-hero Ash and prove his responsibility in the grisly murder of her partner; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past.
"Ash vs Evil Dead" is produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Campbell. Raimi will direct the first episode from a script he wrote with Ivan Raimi and Tom Spezialy.
The 10-episode first season premieres later this year.
