Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reuniting for new TV show about ghost hunters
It's a well-known fact that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have one of the biggest Hollywood bromances ever. The pair first appeared together in the cult sitcom Spaced (co-written by Pegg alongside Jessica Hynes, and directed by Edgar Wright) and they've been more or less inseparable.
Since they first collaborated as friends and cast members, they've gone on to star in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul, The World's End, and made many other cameos together, utilising their irreplaceable comedic chemistry to great effect.
Sadly, the two men have more or less moved onto other projects over the years, with Frost starring in Fighting with my Family, and Pegg being so closely involved in the Star Trek and Mission Impossible franchises.
Watch Simon Pegg break down the most iconic roles of his career:
However, we have some good news for all the Frost/Pegg fans out there: the two actors are apparently due to reunite in the near future, playing a pair of ghost hunters in a TV series entitled 'Truth Seekers.'
According to Variety, the show will air on Amazon Prime, and Frost and Pegg will play amateur paranormal investigators Gus and Dave, who: "Team up to uncover and film paranormal sightings across the UK ... 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."
The press release continues: "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.”
Commenting on the project in an interview with Variety, Pegg stated: "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."
Production on the show is due to start next month, with the first season consisting of for eight 30-ish-minute-long episodes. As for when it'll be released: we don't yet know. I guess we'll just have to wait and see for now.
