Talented actor John C. McGinley will star in the IFC’s upcoming series ‘Stan Against Evil’, from ‘The Simpsons’ scribe Dana Gould. Not only is McGinley great in serious roles, he has a gift for delivering comedic performances. In ‘Stan Against Evil’ he will be combining the two to create and amazing character.
Janet Varney, Deborah Baker Jr., Nate Mooney, Mick Ignis, Danielle Phelan and Gregory Nassif St. John will co-star alongside McGinley. Jack Bishop and Justin Nijm will co-direct the new series.
“‘Stan Against Evil’ follows Stanley Miller (McGinley), a sour, aging bulldog of a New England police sheriff who has recently lost his position as head honcho due to an angry outburst at a most inappropriate moment — his wife’s funeral. Impatient and judgmental, he’s not exactly accepting or kind towards people from different walks of life. When the new, strong-willed sheriff Evie Barret (Varney) opens his eyes to the plague of angry demons haunting their small New Hampshire town, Stan begrudgingly joins an alliance with her to fight them off.“
‘Stan Against Evil’ will have a special Halloween night showing at 10pm, followed by its November 2nd premiere. The 8-episode first season will air Wednesday nights on IFC.
