Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are back at it again, working on yet another project, this time for Amazon. Their new horror-comedy is called Truth Seekers and will follow the adventures of two friends who spend time in supposedly haunted places for their web series.
According to Variety, here is the synopsis for the show:
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.
Truth Seekers will be going into production next month, so there will hopefully be more information soon about the show and Pegg’s weirdly mysterious character.
“Simon, Miles and I, and everyone at Stolen Picture, are incredibly happy to be making ‘Truth Seekers’ with our new partners, Amazon Prime Video,” Frost tells Variety. “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.”
“Nick and I are delighted that ‘Truth Seekers’ has found a home with Amazon Prime Video,” said Pegg. “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 accompany us on a return to the smaller screen.”
Pegg and Frost are also working on an adaptation of Rivers of London, though that project has yet to land at a particular channel or streaming service.
Truth Seekers has no premiere date yet but will be available on Amazon Prime Video.
