23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

EW has debuted five first look images for IFC’s upcoming comedy horror series Stan Against Evil which stars John C. McGinley (Scrubs) as a former sheriff forced to team-up with the new authority Janet Varney (You’re the Worst) as a plague of demons are unleashed upon the town. Check them out here…

Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller (McGinley), a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town who was forced into retirement. Stan has trouble relinquishing his authority to Evie Barret (Varney), the tough and beautiful new sheriff in town, but they form an unlikely alliance when both begin to realize things are not quite right in their quaint New England town. Together, they valiantly fight a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, which just happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th century witch burning.

Stan Against Evil premieres on November 2nd. »
