IFC’s new original horror comedy series Stan Against Evil premieres with two back-to-back episodes Wednesday, November 2 at 10PM and 10:30PM. Additionally, in the spirit of spooks and frights, a special double-airing of the premiere episode will haunt viewers Halloween night, October 31 at 11PM and 11:30PM on IFC. From the mind of Dana Gould (The Simpsons), Stan Against Evil stars John C. McGinley (Scrubs) and Janet Varney (You’re the Worst) and will air the remainder of its 8-episode season with two back-to-back episodes every Wednesday at 10PM and 10:30PM throughout November. 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 is created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation), with Tom Lassally (Silicon Valley) also serving as executive producer. Radical Media (What Happened, Miss Simone?, MARS) will produce the series with Frank Scherma and Justin Wilkes executive producing. In addition to his lead role as Stan, John C. McGinley also serves as a producer. Deborah Baker Jr. and Nate Mooney co-star.
