Though there’s no shortage of horror TV shows these days — “The Walking Dead,” “American Horror Story,” “Penny Dreadful,” “Black Mirror,” “Ash vs Evil Dead,” etc. — a new one in the works could add a unique spin on the genre. The upcoming IFC series “Stan Against Evil” follows Stanley Miller (John McGinley), a gruff, aging New England sheriff who recently lost his position after an angry outburst at his wife’s funeral. Though Miller isn’t exactly accepting or kind towards newcomers, he meets the new sheriff Evie Barret (Janet Varney) who opens his eyes to the plague of angry demons haunting the town. Miller begrudgingly joins an alliance with Barret to stop the demon threat once and for all. Watch an exclusive teaser for the series below.
The series is the brainchild of Dana Gould, who previously served as a producer and writer on “The Simpsons” for eight years and as a producer on “Parks and Recreation” for its first two seasons. John McGinley is best known for his role as Dr. Perry Cox on the sitcom “Scrubs,” as well as his performances in “Platoon,” “Wall Street,” “Office Space,” and “The Rock.” Meanwhile, Janet Varney is known for hosting TBS’ “Dinner and a Movie” series, voicing Korra on the animated series “The Legend of Korra,” and for playing Becca on Stephen Falk’s FXX sitcom “You’re The Worst.”
“Stan Against Evil” will premiere on IFC this fall.
