Ash Vs. Evil Dead Gets Its Sidekicks

Ray Santiago (“Dexter”) and Dana DeLorenzo (“Californication”) have scored the other two leading roles in Starz’s “Ash Vs. Evil Dead,” the Sam Raimi-produced series sequel to his beloved horror comedy franchise “Evil Dead”.

Bruce Campbell is reprising his role as Ash, a stock boy and aging lothario who must return to his monster-hunting ways when a Deadite plague soon threatens to destroy all of humanity. Ash must soon face his own demons, both literally and figuratively speaking.

Santiago will play Pablo Simon Bolivar, an idealistic immigrant and something of a Sancho Panza to Ash’s Don Quixote. DeLorenzo is Kelly Maxwell, a moody wild child trying to outrun her past who is reluctantly dragged into the fight.

“Ash Vs. Evil Dead” has gone straight to series and will premiere on the network towards the end of the year. Filming begins this Spring in New Zealand and Raimi is set to direct the first episode.
