Oscar winner Jordan Peele has partnered with Amazon Studios to deliver a new show about Nazi Hunters seeking revenge called The Hunt.
“Our biggest priority is attracting exceptional writing and producing talent to bring addictive, groundbreaking projects to Prime Video,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “The Hunt is edge-of-your-seat entertainment that is not only culturally relevant but deliciously original. David Weil, Jordan Peele and the entire Monkeypaw and Sonar Entertainment teams represent the dream team! We can’t wait to get started!”
According to Deadline:
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.
“When David Weil first shared The Hunt with me, I immediately knew that we had to be involved,” Peele said. “It’s cathartic. It’s noir. It’s frighteningly relevant. It’s exactly what I want to see on television. I am thrilled to be working with Amazon in bringing this incredible vision to the world.”
