IFC;s upcoming horror-comedy series ‘Stan Against Evil’ has just unleashed a trailer that takes a look at their main character Stan, played by ‘Scrubs’ actor John C. McGinley, in action against 172 demons. McGinely, who is a fantastic actor with a talent for playing the role of a lovable jerk, stars as Stan, the local Sheriff and demon slayer.
The series co-stars Janet Varney, Deborah Baker Jr., Nate Mooney, Mick Ignis, Danielle Phelan and Gregory Nassif St. John. The new series was created by ‘The Simpsons’ scribe Dana Gould.
“‘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 premiere on Halloween night at 10pm on IFC, followed by its official premiere on November 2d with back to back episodes. The series will air on Wednesday nights through out its 10-episode first season.
