Not only will Simon Pegg and Nick Frost be together again onscreen in new series Truth Seekers, it’ll be a return to their roots of horror comedy.
The Shaun of the Dead pair hark back a little to the days of their movie Paul as they’ll be playing paranormal investigators, although initial images show that they’ll be quite different characters – just look at that pic of Pegg above. Nice wig, babe!
Story-wise, the pair team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK for an online channel. As their adventures continue, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more frightening and even sometimes deadly, leading them to uncover a conspiracy – one that could even bring about Armageddon for the human race. Eep!
Also starring in the series is A Clockwork Orange veteran Malcolm McDowell, as well as Samson Kayo, Emma D’Arcy and Susan Wokoma.
We don’t yet have a release date for Truth Seekers, but we sure wish that we did.
Update: We now have a quick look at the show:
