Bruce Campbell Has A New TV Series And A New Book

Bruce Campbell is one of the hardest working guys in the business. One of the funniest, too. I’ve got some great news for fans of the Groovy One. In addition to his voice work on Netflix’s The Last Kids on Earth, Bruce is going to be hosting an all new television show starting this summer. More good news: He’s got a new book coming out as well. I told you he was working hard!

Read on to learn how you can Hail to the King in 2019! First up: Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!


Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Synopsis

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has cornered the market on the extraordinary, the death defying, the odd and the unusual. Now, 100 years after Robert L. Ripley launched the brand, the phrase Believe It or Not! is known globally and has come to symbolize how we marvel at the wonders of our world.

Travel Channel is rebooting the iconic series, hosted by veteran actor Bruce Campbell (Evil DeadBurn Notice), with 10 all-new, one-hour episodes that will showcase the most astonishing, real and one-of-a-kind stories. Currently in production, the series will be shot on location at the famed Ripley Warehouse in Orlando, Fl, and will incorporate incredible stories from all parts of the globe — from Brazil to Baltimore.

Awesome! The series is slated to premiere June 9, 2019 at 9pm est/8pm cst. Can’t wait!  At the risk of dating myself, I was a big fan of the 1982 – 1986 version of the show. I can’t wait to see what kind of a unique twist Bruce puts on his latest hosting gig.

Next up: a new paperback!
