Former Scrubs star John C. McGinley has signed on for the lead in Stan Against Evil, a new horror comedy series from writer-producer Dana Gould (The Simpsons). McGinley will be joined in the cast of the eight-episode series by Janet Varney (The Legend of Korra).
The show, which will air on IFC, sees McGinley as “Stanley Miller, a malcontented sheriff of a New Hampshire town who loses his job after an outburst at his wife’s funeral. He is recruited, begrudgingly, by the new sheriff, Evie Barret (Varney), to join forces with her to fight a plague of demons that haunt their hamlet.”
Stan Against Evil is set to premiere in the fall.
