Amazon Boards Simon Pegg, Nick Frost Series ‘Truth Seekers’
“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 its stars’ Sony-backed production company, Stolen Picture.
Frost plays 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 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 wills also star, as Dave, a character about whom little is yet known. Further casting will be announced soon.
