IFC’s upcoming horror-comedy series ‘Stan Against Evil’ is only days away from its premiere, on Wednesday, November 2nd at 10pm. The main character of Stan, the newly-widowed local Sheriff and demon slayer, is played by ‘Scrubs’ actor John C. McGinley. McGinley, who is a fantastic actor with a talent for playing the role of lovable jerks, will be going going head-to-head with the angry spirits of 172 witches.
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 2nd with back to back episodes. The series will air on Wednesday nights throughout its 10-episode first season.
