Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, who star of some of our favorite films like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, are back together again. This time, they’re making a horror comedy TV series titled Truth Seekers. The news was revealed this week in a Variety exclusive. Let’s find out more about this series that is reuniting our favorite duo.
Truth Seekers, a comedy-horror series about paranormal investigators starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg will bow on Amazon Prime Video, Which has landed international rights to the show and will launch it as an original. The project is the first series from the stars’ Sony-backed production company, Stolen Picture.
Frost will play Gus, one half of a ghost-hunting duo who 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 adventure on their 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 will star as Dave, a character about whom little is yet known. Further casting will be announced soon.
Pegg and Frost have appeared on screen together in the hit series Spaced, and in movies including the Edgar Wright-directed Cornetto Trilogy comprised of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.
Simon Pegg on Truth Seekers:
“Nick and I are delighted that Truth Seekers has found a home with Amazon Prime Video. We’re looking forward to working closely with them and creating something very special. These are truly exciting times for television, and I can’t think of a better partner than Amazon to us on a return to the smaller screen.”
