Jordan Peele’s The Hunt series lands at Amazon
The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that Jordan Peele’s Nazi drama, The Hunt, has been picked up by Amazon. David Weil (Half Heard in the Stillness) created The Hunt series and will also write and serve as an executive producer.
The series has been given a direct-to-series order and will have 10 hour long episodes. The Hunt will tell the story of a group known as the Hunters living in New York City in 1977. The Hunters discover that hundreds of former high-ranking Nazi officials are living among them and conspiring to create the Fourth Reich in the U.S. The group then set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans. The story is inspired by real-life events.
Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment are producing The Hunt, while Peele and Win Rosenfeld (Dark Net) are executive producing for Monkeypaw. Tom Lesinski (Mr. Mercedes) and Jenna Santoianni for Sonar will also serve as executive producers.
The Hunt will premiere worldwide when it debuts on Amazon. As of now, there is no set release date.
