SDCC: Evil Dead television show in the works

During the panel for Last of Us at SDCC today, we learned from Sam Raimi that he is currently developing a television show based off his 1981 cult horror classic, The Evil Dead.

There was an overall lack of details but he did say that he is writing the series with his brother, Ivan Raimi, and that Bruce Campbell will also be involved. One plus side about this is that a lot of cable networks are not afraid of horror. We see gory, bloody television shows all the time like True Blood, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Bates Motel, Hannibal, American Horror Story, Dexter, etc.. The list goes on at this point. Making a show about this story won't be as hard for people to grasp as it would have been just 10-15 years ago.
However, just because it's being written doesn't mean it's actually going to be made. Seeing the development hell that both Army of Darkness 2 and Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead sequel are going through it doesn't seem that things are so easy.

What do you guys think? Do you want an Evil Dead show?
