Netflix can always be relied upon to provide audiences with unexpected gems but, as the streaming service continues to make progress in the production of new material, we not only get to hear about those gems in advance, but we get to anticipate their arrival and consume it immediately upon release. Such is the case with Little Evil – a new comedy coming from writer-director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale Vs Evil) that is now set to star Evangeline Lilly and Adam Scott.
The premise has great comedic potential, while leaving room for Craig’s trademark scary edge. Gary (Adam Scott) marries Samantha (Evangeline Lilly) and in doing so, gains a six year old stepson (played by Owen Atlas). The honeymoon period is somewhat disrupted, however, because the child is revealed to be the Anti-Christ.
Such a plot would demand some deft work on the part of the cast, and in this case, that also includes Donald Faison, Chris D’Elia, Brad Williams, Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Marcus Terrell Smith and Tyler Labine. As is usual for Netflix, we do not yet have a definitive premiere date for Little Evil, beyond the fact that Netflix is expecting it to arrive at some point in 2017. That gives us all plenty of time to clear our streaming lists to make way for this fresh comedy.
