Time To Investigate
A new trailer for Amazon’s Truth Seekers gives us another glimpse at Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s upcoming horror-comedy series.
The show follows Frost’s character, a paranormal investigator, and a team as they set out to film supernatural occurrences and share them via their online channel.
Here’s the trailer –
Amazon’s lengthy blurb reads –
“Truth Seekers is a supernatural comedy-drama 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.”
“Set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters, Truth Seekers mixes the very funny with the very scary in an exciting take on genre storytelling and stars Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen.”
Pegg teased back in 2018 that –
“Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something.”
“It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown.”
“Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.”
Truth Seekers is co-written by Pegg, Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz who executive produces alongside Miles Ketley and Jim Field Smith, who also serves as director.
Truth Seekers arrives on Amazon Prime Video on October 30th.
