Bruce Campbell: Black Friday Has the Potential to be a Limited Series

Bruce Campbell has been making the rounds actively promoting Casey Tebo’s seasonal horror comedy, Black Friday. Today, the veteran actor made an appearance on Arroe Collins Like It’s Live to discuss his upcoming venture.

As everyone knows, the production is about an alien parasite that infects shoppers on the dreaded annual consumer fest turning them into a teeming horde of blood craving zombie-like creatures. Campbell who plays Jonathan, the manager of We Love Toys (a doppelganger for Toys-R-Us) must fight off the monsters along with his employees, Ken (Devon Sawa), Marnie (Ivana Baquero), Archie (Michael Jai White), Chris (Ryan Lee) and Brian (Stephen Peck) to survive.

While this may seem like a familiar premise to the thespian’s legions of fans, it is vastly different in tone from Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy. Sure, it is funny like most of Ash Williams’ adventures and the characters don’t have any discernible skills on how to fight the infected customers. However, that is where the similarities end.

According to Bruce, one of the reasons why he signed on for the film had quite a bit to do with the timely issues that Black Friday addresses in Andy Greskoviak’s perceptive script, particularly the concerns of minimum wage workers.

“I really enjoyed the little hint of sociological aspects to the script where the employees complain about overtime, fair pay and working conditions.”

Of course, if the stars align properly, Tebo’s flick has the ability to become a cult favorite. While Campbell believes it works as a standalone feature, he sees the potential for a limited series. After all, he does have experience in that arena and with the success of SyFy’s Chucky foray, that could be a future avenue for Tebo to explore.

In Campbell’s words:

“You could make it the pilot of a series, if you wanted to. You can never predict this stuff. It’s really hard to say but sure, TV, you would do a limited series, probably.”

Who knows what is in the cards for this forthcoming chiller? Are you listening Netflix?

Black Friday opens in theaters November 19th and it will be available on VOD starting November 23rd.
