The busiest man in Hollywood, Jordan Peele, is working on yet another show. This time in the form of a Nazi-hunting drama set in the 1970s.
“The Hunt follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.”
The show stars none other than Al Pacino, Logan Lerman and Jerrika Hinton. Lerman plays Jonah Heidelbaum who sets out to find his grandmother’s killer after a mysterious intruder breaks into their apartment. In doing so, he is picked up by The Hunters.
Joining Pacino and Lerhman is Kate Mulvany, Ebony Obsidian, Tiffany Boone, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Louis Ozawa Changchien and Dylan Baker.
Set to air on Amazon, The Hunt is being produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Production and Sonar Entertainment and is created by David Weil (Moonfall) who will also executive produce and write for the series. Weil and Nikki Toscano serve as executive producers and co-showrunners.
