As you may be aware, ComicCon@Home is currently in full swing at the moment, and as part of the panel for ‘Truth Seekers‘, the upcoming original comedy-horror series starring Simon Pegg & Nick Frost, they released a trailer.
Starring Frost as Gus and Pegg as Dave, ‘Truth Seekers’ follows 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’.
Alongside Frost (as Gus) and Pegg (as Dave), the series stars Malcolm McDowell (‘Mozart in the Jungle’, A Clockwork Orange’) as Richard, Samson Kayo (‘Timewasters’, ‘Famalam’) as Elton, Emma D’Arcy (‘Wanderlust’) as Astrid, Susan Wokoma (‘Chewing Gum’, ‘Crazyhead’, ‘Year of the Rabbit’) as Helen, and Julian Barratt (‘The Mighty Boosh’, ‘Sally4Ever’) a Dr. Pester Toynbee. Additional cast includes Morgana Robinson (‘The Windsors’) as Janey, Kate Nash (‘GLOW’) as Mary and Kevin Eldon (‘Hot Fuzz’, ‘Sanditon’, ‘The Last Kingdom’) as Jack.
