“Can you feel it? Ancient magic resides all around us. Ours is not the only universe. There are realms beyond it. Underneath it, a myriad of parallel dimensions.” So begins the teaser trailer for Truth Seekers, our first look at Amazon’s new comedy series, said to be a mix of “the very funny with the very scary in an exciting take on genre storytelling” set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters. It was released during the series’ Comic-Con@Home virtual panel today.
From creators and writers Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz) and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) who also star, Nat Saunders (Sick Note) and James Serafinowicz (Sick Note), Truth Seekers is a supernatural 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.
Truth Seekers stars Frost as Gus, Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen.
Pegg, Frost, Saunders and Serafinowicz co-write and executive produce alongside Miles Ketley and Jim Field Smith, who also serves as director.
