After five million views since its debut on March 2, “Angel of Death” will be making the move from the internet to television, as Spike TV will air the 10-part web series as a 90-minute televised movie on Saturday, July 25 at Midnight, ET/PT. The announcement was made today by John Griffin, vice president, programming, Spike TV.
Starring Zoe Bell (Quentin Tarantino’s “Death Proof”), “Angel of Death” is about a remorseless assassin employed by a ruthless crime family. After suffering a severe head trauma while on the job, she begins to hallucinate and becomes haunted by her victims. As a result of the injury, Eve is determined to make up for her past crimes by seeking revenge on those who ordered the hits in the first place — her mob employers.
In addition to Bell, the cast includes Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess,” “Battlestar Galactica”) as Vera; Doug Jones (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “4: Rise of the Silver Surfer”) as Dr. Rankin; Vail Bloom (“The Young and the Restless”) as Regina Downes; Ted Raimi (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as Jed Norton; Brian Poth (“CSI: Miami”) as Graham; Justin Huen (“Weeds”) as Franklin; and Jake Abel (“Cold Case”) as Cameron Downes.
“Angel of Death” is directed by Paul Etheredge (“Buried Alive,” “Hellbent”) and produced by John Norris (“Buried Alive”). The series is a White Rock Lake Production, distributed by Sony Pictures Television.
