Nick Frost and Simon Pegg’s Truth Seekers is coming to Amazon Prime Video. The streaming service has secured global rights to the comedy horror series and will air Truth Seekers in over 200 countries and territories.
“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”, said Simon Pegg. “These are truly exciting times for television and I can’t think of a better partner than Amazon to accompany us on a return to the smaller screen.”
Truth Seekers follows 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.
The comedy series, which has an order for eight episodes, hails from Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Miles Ketley’s UK based production company Stolen Picture. It is being penned by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz. Jim Field Smith is attached to direct and will also executive produce alongside Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Nat Saunders, James Serafinowicz and Miles Ketley. In addition to writing and executive producing, Frost and Pegg will also star. Amazon said that further casting would be announced at a later date.
“Simon, Miles and I, and everyone at Stolen Picture, are incredibly happy to be making Truth Seekers with our new partners, Amazon Prime Video”, commented Nick Frost. “It’s been nothing but a joyride in seeing this mad tale of paranormal conspiracy unfold in all its understated brilliance. Amazon’s commitment and support of the show and of original programming generally, showed us that we couldn’t be collaborating with a bigger or better team.”
While Georgia Brown, Director of European Amazon Original Series, added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Simon, Nick and the entire team at Stolen Picture to make what is set to be the next thrilling Amazon Original series for Prime Video made by leading British talent. I’m excited for audiences around the globe to see what they’re creating, and to meet the fantastic characters on this special, unique, and terrifying quest.”
