Deadline reports that Ray Santiago (Touch, Suburban Gothic) and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas) will join Bruce Campbell in fighting the Deadite hordes in the 10 episode series from Campbell, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.
Campbell will reprise his role as Ash, described as the “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.”
Santiago will play “Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant who becomes Ash’s loyal sidekick – a Sancho Panza to Ash’s Don Quixote. Pablo believes in Ash’s heroism even if Ash himself doesn’t.”
DeLorenzo “is Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past. Reluctantly dragged into the fight against Evil with Ash and Pablo, Kelly finds a different kind of family with her fellow Deadite slayers.”
Ash Vs Evil Dead starts shooting in Spring in New Zealand with an eye to airing in late 2015. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
