Horror-Comedy ‘Stan Against Evil’ Series Sets Premiere Date
Everyone associates stand-up comedian and writer Dana Gould (The Simpsons) with comedy, but did you know that he’s a legit horror fan as well? Which is why his new show, Stan Against Evil, not only reflects his personal tastes, but offers that perfect blend of humor and comedy. At a recent Television Critics Association panel, Gould cited Evil Dead II and An American Werewolf in London as major influences for the eight episode horror-comedy series.
That alone would be enough to sign me up for the premiere, but casting John C. McGinley (Scrubs) as the disgruntled sheriff forced to contend with demons in a New England town? Yeah, I’m sold. Check out the clip below, which sees Stan dealing with evil in his own, ornery way.
Stan Against Evil will premiere with two back-to-back episodes Wednesday, November 2 at 10PM and 10:30PM on IFC. As a Halloween treat, a special airing of the premiere episode will play on October 31 at 10PM. The remainder of the episodes will air on Wednesdays at 10PM throughout the fall on IFC.
