Stan Against Evil, IFC's first horror-comedy series, has an official premiere date! The show, which follows in the footsteps of Ash vs. Evil Dead by featuring a man who's actually older than 28 (this time, Scrubs' John C. McGinley) fighting evil forces, will have a special premiere on Halloween. That will be followed by a two-part official premiere on November 2nd. The show will then run for an eight episode first season Wednesdays at 10 PM.

McGinley will play

Stanley Miller, 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 (Janet Varney, The Legend of Korra) 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.

Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra) will play rival sheriff Evie Barret. She and McGinley are joined in the cast by Deborah Baker Jr. (2 Broke Girls).

The show was created by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation).
