Bruce Campbell returns as the dopey, selfish Ash in Sam Raimi‘s new TV series Ash vs Evil Dead, but this time he isn’t alone in his battle against demented, relentless evil.
There’s a whole set of new characters around him, from the two sidekicks (at least one of whom might be a lot smarter than Ash) played by Dana DeLorenzo and Ray Santiago, to the cop played by Jill Marie Jones and Ruby, the tough new character for Lucy Lawless. Meet them all in a new featurette below, which also has a bunch of new footage, and even a good hint about how Ash unleashes the Evil Dead this time. Read More »
We’ve seen a couple trailers for Ash vs Evil Dead, now it’s time for the behind the scenes featurette. This one should do the trick; it’s a couple minutes of bland but enthusiastic quotes from Bruce Campbell, producer Robert Tapert, new co-star Lucy Lawless, and composer Joseph LoDuca, among others. It’s got some good shots of the show’s creation, and one or two good bits, including Lucy Lawless’s comment that the show is a “jolly splatter-fest!” Check out the Ash vs Evil Dead making-of video below.

Bruce Campbell dominated the panel, both via questions asked of him, and those asked of his costars and collaborators. Wearing a white dinner jacket and what could’ve quite possibly been alligator shoes (from this distance from the stage), Campbell made sure to let the room know he was there as he talked about the bloody show and his long relationship with fans.
