Malcolm McDowell, Samson Kayo, Emma D’Arcy, Susan Wokoma and Julian Barratt amongst others will be joining Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Prime Video’s forthcoming Amazon Original, Truth Seekers.
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.
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 from the minds that gave us Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Sick Note and Paul.
Made by Pegg, Frost and Miles Ketley’s UK based production company Stolen Picture, the series begins filming this week.
Malcolm McDowell will play Richard, Samson Kayo will play Elton, Emma D’Arcy will play Astrid, Susan Wokoma will play Helen, and Julian Barratt will play Dr. Peter Toynbee. As previously announced, Simon Pegg will star as Dave, and Nick Frost as Gus.
Additional cast for the series also include Morgana Robinson as Janey, Kate Nash as Mary and Kevin Eldon as Jack.
