Bruce Campbell (Ash Vs. Evil Dead) will be hosting a new Ripley’s Believe It Or Not TV series. The actor made the announcement during the New Year’s Eve festivities in Times Square via a livestream at ripleys.com.
“As an actor I’ve always been drawn towards stuff that’s a little more out there, a little more fantastical. As a kid I read the Ripley books. I saw the TV shows. So, I’m here to announce officially, once and for all, just blowing into town to tell you that we’re officially bringing back Ripley as a television show. I’m hosting for the Travel Channel.”
If you’re my age (old), you might remember Ripley’s Believe It Or Not was already a weekly television show in the 80s hosted by another legendary actor, Jack Palance.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not has been a newspaper comic strip spotlighting curiosities and weird history for a little over 100 years. With Campbell’s involvement, this seems like a perfect match
