Amazon Prime has been adding a lot of fantastic original series to their line-up lately including “The Boys”, which reveals the dark side of superheroes. But that’s not all, they’re also adding a new horror-comedy titled “Truth Seekers,” starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg as paranormal investigators.
Variety reports that the new series will premiere on Amazon Prime Video, which has scored international rights to the comedy-horror series which will begin production this month.
In the series, “Frost and Pegg’s characters, Gus and Dave, team up to uncover and film paranormal sightings across the U.K. in the series. They stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers, and abandoned hospitals using an array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos and share their adventures on an online channel. Their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, terrifying, and even deadly as the pair begin to uncover a conspiracy that could threaten the entire human race.”
Pegg and Frost make a terrific team, starring in the hit films Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End. The two were last seen together in 2019’s Slaughter House Rulez (review).
Richard Webb will produce “Truth Seekers,” which will feature eight half-hour episodes.
