The perfect duo to ever exist is returning to entertain us with their brilliant chemistry once again and we can't wait!
Seriously, who doesn't love themselves a bit of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? The duo has given us some of the best TV shows and movies ever made - including Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Paul and after making us wait for years, to the joy of fans, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are returning to entertain us all once again, this time for a TV show. Get ready to see the magic Simon Pegg and Nick Frost create once again in an all-new horror-comedy!
According to Variety, the show titled Truth Seekers is getting developed by Amazon Prime and will be distributed as a Prime Original with Sony acting as a producer. The story of the same will revolve around two ghost-hunters (of course) Gus and Dave played by Nick and Simon respectively.
The duo will work as a team to discover the undead and record paranormal sightings as they travel around old haunted places including abandoned hospitals and churches.
The supernatural behavior around them will gradually increase to the point that it starts threatening human existence and the ghostbusters will emerge as heroes who fight down well, ghosts.
Sounds like Supernatural for Amazon Prime but hey, the original Supernatural is ending and we can definitely use some Simon Pegg and Nick Frost ghost hunting in our lives!
“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 said. "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.”
Simon also added, “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. 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.”
Amazon has ordered eight episodes of Truth Seekers which will be about half an hour long each. Simon and Nick have penned down the script for the show along with Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz who are also serving as executive producers of the Prime original series. Jim Field Smith of She's Out of My League is going to direct the comedy-horror masterpiece.
"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," said Georgia Brown, director of European Amazon Original Series.
The release date of the upcoming show is currently unknown but watch this space for updates! Are you excited to see Simon Pegg and Nick Frost work together? We can't wait!
