Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have teamed back once again for a new Amazon series called Truth Seekers. I love the duo, and how they made some of the most hilarious movies. The show is a horror-comedy that revolves around a couple of misfit ghost hunters who are on a quest to uncover and document ghost sighting for their online channel.
Check out the first look at the series, and here’s the synopsis for it:
Truth Seekers is a horror comedy series about a team of part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK, sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see. However, as they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers and abandoned hospitals with their array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more terrifying and even deadly, as they begin to uncover a conspiracy that could bring about Armageddon for the entire human race.
Set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters, Truth Seekers mixes the very funny with the very scary in an exciting take on genre storytelling, and stars Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen.
The series will consist of eight 30 minute episodes, and Pegg and Frost co-wrote the series with Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz, who executive produce. Jim Field Smith will direct, and it also costars Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Emma D’Arcy (Hanna), Samson Kayo (Dolittle), and Susan Wokoma (Year of the Rabbit).
