Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who both starred together in Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul and The World’s End, are returning to TV for the horror-comedy series Truth Seekers. The show has been acquired by Amazon Prime Video.

Frost plays Gus, one half of a ghost-hunting, duo who 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.

Pegg plays Dave, a character about whom little is yet known. Further casting will be announced soon, according to Variety.

Their production banner, Stolen Picture, is behind the new show. Frost, Pegg, and Miles Ketley formed back in 2017.

Pegg had this to say about the show:

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.

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.

Pegg and Frost are co-writing with Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz who executive produce alongside Ketley and Jim Field Smith who will also direct.
