The Amazon Prime Video library continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Their latest get is Truth Seekers. A comedy-horror series about paranormal investigators starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

In Truth Seekers, Nick Frost plays Gus and Simon Pegg plays Dave. According to Variety, the duo 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.

Amazon Prime Video landed the international rights to Truth Seekers and it will premiere as an Amazon Original. The show is from Pegg and Frost’s company, Stolen Picture. The two stars have a long creative history together starting with the hilarious British comedy Spaced. They also worked with Edgar Wright in the Cornetto trilogy which includes Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and World’s End.

Richard Webb is producing Truth Seekers and the series will be shown in eight half-hour episodes. Production starts next month.
