Today’s news includes a promo and details for a promising new horror series from IFC entitled, STAN AGAINST EVIL. While some may call this horror-comedy a rip-off of Ash vs. Evil Dead, it doesn’t seem so to me and there is always room for more than one promising new horror series in my book. Look for the show to kick off on Wednesday, November 2nd on the IFC channel. Check out a few pics and a promo trailer, along with more details on the show below.
From The Press Release
IFC announced today that new horror-comedy Stan Against Evil will premiere with two back-to-back episodes Wednesday, November 2 at 10PM and 10:30PM. Additionally, in the spirit of spooks and frights, a special airing of the premiere episode will haunt viewers Halloween night, October 31 at 10PM on IFC. Starring John C. McGinley (Scrubs) and Janet Varney (You’re the Worst), Stan Against Evil will air the remainder of its 8-episode first season Wednesdays at 10PM throughout the fall.
Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller (McGinley), a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town who was forced into retirement. Stan has trouble relinquishing his authority to Evie Barret (Varney), the tough and beautiful new sheriff in town, but they form an unlikely alliance when both begin to realize things are not quite right in their quaint New England town. Together, they valiantly fight a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, which just happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th century witch burning.
Stan Against Evil is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation), with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley) also serving as executive producer. RadicalMedia (What Happened, Miss Simone?, MARS) will produce the series with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. Star John C. McGinley also serves as a producer.
