Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are now developing a Ghost Hunters-ish TV show, Truth Seekers. This is a comedy-horror series.
While speaking to Variety, Pegg said, “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.”
Truth Seekers is just one of the projects which are in development by Stolen Picture. This duo is in production in a movie, Slaughterhouse Rulez.
It seems like they want to reach a point where their projects will be through their production company.
“In terms of where the money is being made, and creatively, making episodic television is now no less nourishing than a two-hour movie,” said Frost. “I’d rather have a lot less money and make a film or a TV series and have a great time doing it than put it through a million processes and people you don’t know and you don’t respect creatively.”
