Amazon Picks Up Ghost Hunting Show Starring Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

They have fought off zombies, a cult, and aliens. But how will British comedians, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost fair against…GHOSTS!?!

The new series titled “Truth Seekers” will reunite the Shaun of the Dead co-stars and will come courtesy of their production company, Stolen Pictures.

[Frost and Pegg play a] 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 and Frost will be playing Gus and Dave who are described as a homegrown version of agents Scully and Mulder from the XFiles. Not much else is known about the show beyond that at this point.

In a statement, Pegg said, “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.” Frost added, “It’s been nothing but a joyride in seeing this mad tale of paranormal conspiracy unfold in all its understated brilliance.”
