... and that's the new Evil Dead TV show, the announcement of which caused quite the delighted uproar last summer.
We know it'll be at SDCC because Bruce Campbell was asked directly about it and said, "I think we'll be all over that like a cheap suit." Okay, that's not exactly a solid confirmation, but close enough. Not only will he reprise his role as Ash in the Starz TV series, but the rest of the cast looks good too: Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Jill Marie Jones and of course Lucy Lawless. (Please, someone, make an Evil Dead/Xena/Battlestar Galactica mashup.)
The plot - if you need one - is this: 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 half hour show will launch this fall. We don't have a premiere date yet - but no doubt that's only because they're saving the announcement for Comic-Con.
