A 'Evil Dead' tv series is in the works, says Sam Raimi


One of the quietest stories of the 2014 Comic Con was Sam Raimi's offhand announcement that he is planning on drafting Bruce Campbell for an Evil Dead tv series. There were absolutely no other details provided but it doesn't really matter. If Raimi is involved and Bruce Campbell is on board it's great news for your television.

I've said before that Evil Dead (or Army of Darkness more specifically) is one of three TV series that should be made but haven't yet. The other two, in case you're wondering, are Ghostbusters and the Silmarillion.

I kinda pictured a S-Mart housewares department manager who tries to keep the forces of darkness from coming through a portal to hell located in linens. Hopefully, whatever Raimi has in mind is even better.
