Simon Pegg and Nick Frost might just be one of the greatest onscreen horror-comedy duos of the last 20 years, and the Shaun of the Dead co-stars are bringing a brand new paranormal horror-comedy titled Truth Seekers to Amazon.
The show, which will be billed as an Amazon Original, centers on a paranormal investigation team who stakes out haunted churches, abandoned hospitals, and a host of other locations in search of proof of the paranormal for their online audience.
According to Variety, as their experiences become more overt and dangerous, they will uncover a conspiracy that could “threaten the entire human race.”
Frost is set to play Gus, one half of the paranormal investigating duo, but we know very little about Pegg’s character beyond the fact that his name is Dave.
Truth Seekers is the first project out of the gate from Stolen Pictures productions, a company formed by Pegg, Frost, and Miles Ketley and the Amazon placement will no doubt spell good things for the Sony-backed company’s future.
The comedic chemistry between Pegg and Frost is undeniable and we can no doubt expect big things from the show.
Production on Truth Seekers will begin this fall, but no release date has been mentioned at this time.
