Bruce Campbell will be reprising his iconic career-making role as Ash.
The logline: “Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as 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.”

Bruce Campbell confirms and sheds some light on the upcoming Evil Dead television series in an interview with the Macomb Daily:
The popular indie-actor and Royal Oak native will soon reprise his most famous movie role, Ash Williams, in an “Evil Dead” TV series, it was announced recently. Campbell, 56, couldn’t say too much about it, however, and not because he was dodging the question.
“There’s very little to tell. It’s in the early development stages,” says Campbell, a graduate of Groves High School in Birmingham. “I’ve agreed to be in it. Beyond that, there’s absolutely nothing to tell. There’s no start date. It’s just something we’ve finally agreed to do.”
