‘Ash Vs. Evil Dead’ Poster and Teaser Trailer Released by Starz (Video)

Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rop Tapert serve as executive producers on the series

Starz released a poster and a teaser trailer for their upcoming “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” series on Thursday.

The series picks up where the “Evil Dead” films left off, with Ash (Bruce Campbell) 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.

The series also stars Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”), Jill Marie Jones (“Sleepy Hollow”), Ray Santiago (“Touch,” “Meet the Fockers”) and Dana DeLorenzo (“A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”).

ash-vs-evil-deadRaimi is directing the first episode of “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” that he wrote with Ivan Raimi (“Darkman,” “Army of Darkness,” “Drag Me to Hell”), Craig DiGregorio (“Workaholics,” “Chuck”) and Tom Spezialy (“Chuck,” “Reaper,” “Desperate Housewives”).

Raimi will also serve as executive producer, along with Rob Tapert (“Evil Dead,” “Spartacus,” “Xena: Warrior Princess”) and Bruce Campbell (“Evil Dead,” “Burn Notice”) along with Craig DiGregorio (“Workaholics,” “Chuck”) who will serve as executive producer/showrunner. Ivan Raimi will co-executive produce and Aaron Lam (“Spartacus”) will serve as producer.
