It has been confirmed that Ash will take on the Evil Dead in a new Starz Original series set to premiere in 2015. Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have signed on for the 10-episode project with Raimi’s brother Ivan as co-writer for the series script. Sam Raimi will direct the pilot episode.
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.
