The longtime screen duo of Simon Pegg & Nick Frost have revealed the first images and a trailer for their upcoming streaming series Truth Seekers.
The series has been in development since 2018, and is a collaboration between Amazon Prime and Pegg & Frost's production company Stolen Picture. Said Frost last year;
Simon... 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
Truth Seekers follows a ghost-hunting duo who uncover who a conspiracy that could threaten the human race. The cast also stars Malcolm McDowell, Samson Kayo, Emma D'Arcy, and Susan Wokoma. It represents Pegg & Frost's return to television after 19 years, following the cult Channel 4 sitcom Spaced, which was co-created by their longtime collaborator Edgar Wright.
The duo earned widespread attention and acclaim through their Cornetto trilogy of genre comedies (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End), and the standalone sci-fi comedy Paul.
