Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are up to their old ways. The pair has been pretty busy with their mainstream offerings. Frost is in Tomb Raider, and Pegg has been swamped with the likes of Star Trek and Mission: Impossible, but they already laid the foundation of their future last year when they formed their studio Stolen Picture, where the film Slaughterhouse Rulez is being made.
Now, it sounds like once their previous commitments are done, they will be moving on to their own original ideas. An upcoming TV show they are currently planning is called Truth Seekers, and it’s a half-hour comedy-horror show about “a three-person paranormal investigation team.”
Here’s what Pegg had to say about the show:
“Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something. It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.”
Admittedly, the first thing that comes to mind is the Adam Scott/Craig Robinson series Ghosted, which seems to cover similar territory, though personally, that show has been more of a miss than a hit with me. Should this new series be able to strike that balance of comedy and horror better, it could end up being a lot more special.
