Amazon Prime Shares First Pictures Of Simon Pegg And Nick Frost In Truth Seekers

Amazon Prime has shared a first glimpse of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's new horror comedy series Truth Seekers.

Co-written by Pegg and Frost alongside Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz, Truth Seekers follows a team of part-time paranormal investigators as they attempt to uncover and document ghost sightings across the UK.

Promising an 'exciting take on genre storytelling', the programme will combine 'the very funny with the very scary', which is a style the comedy duo have become well known for.

The show will air on Amazon Prime, which has now released photos of the cast in character, including Nick Frost as Gus, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Samson Kayo as Elton, Susan Wokoma as Helen, Emma D'Arcy as Astrid and Simon Pegg as Dave.

A synopsis reads: "Starring Nick Frost as Gus and Simon Pegg as Dave, Truth Seekers is a horror comedy series about 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."

Simon 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. 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."

Nick Frost added: "Simon, Miles and I, and everyone at Stolen Picture, are incredibly happy to be making Truth Seekers with our new partners, Amazon Prime Video.

"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."

There's no release date just yet, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on that front.
