About:

Set in 17th century colonial Massachusetts—a significant time in the history of American politics, religion and society—Salem brings you the real story behind the infamous witch trials. In Salem, witches are real, and they’re behind it all. Salem Village and Salem Town feuded over property, grazing rights and church rights. The government was dominated by Puritan leaders. People were scrutinized closely and this resulted in obvious discord. They were afraid of being persecuted for anything that may offend the Puritan mindset. The word “witch” seemed an easy and appropriate curse hurled at someone who behaved abnormally.

First Look At Lucy Lawless In Ash Vs. Evil Dead


Ash Vs. Evil Dead Comic-Con Trailer
 

Check out a first look at Lucy Lawless in the Starz series starring Bruce Campbell Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

Cambell also calmed fans fears that the series would be a pg-13 rated version as it’s on TV.

“It would be silly of us to rip the fans off by doing a watered-down version of the series,” Campbell said Friday at the Television Critics Association press tour, reports EW.com. “If this came out as a movie, it would be unrated. … The beauty of working with Starz is we have no content restriction whatsoever… I went blind the other day shooting a scene. That’s how much blood there is on the show. I’ve been gagged once and I went blind.”

Regarding Lawless’ character, who blames Ash for the Evil Dead outbreak and is described as a mysterious figure who is myopic in her quest to hunt down the source of the recent Evil, the actess offered: “She’s a bad bitch and she’s stalking Ash Williams. She’s got a big chip on her shoulder and a hot obsession.”

Update: Lucy Lawless shoots down the rumor (see below tweet).

 

It’s being reported that a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is in the works at NBC.

THR reports twenty years after the series first aired, NBC and Universal are in the early stages of launching a new series.

A writer is currently being sought, and it’s said original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are also involved, in what is being described as a “moder reboot” for Xena.

The new Xena is said to have: “the charisma and charm of Lawless and the smarts of The Hunger Games‘ Katniss as producers are said to be looking for a sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation.”

It’s unknown if the new Xena series will feature Lucy Lawless, but it’s said NBC wants Lawless to have a role both on screen and behind the scenes as Lawless has been pitching a new Xena series for some time.

Lawless is also reteaming with Sam Raimi for Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

The Xena reboot is eyed for a 2016 release.
