Amazon Studio’s Nazi Hunting “Hunters” Will Premiere This February
The Al Pacino-led and Jordan Peele-produced Hunters will debut on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service come February 21, 2020. The upcoming show is about a band of Nazi hunters going after, yes, Nazis! I am so here for this!
Hunters is being promoted as a conspiracy thriller. It was created by David Weil (Moonfall). Peele executive produced this project. So at least you know it will be good, if not one of the best new shows in 2020.
The description from Deadline reads:
Hunters 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.
Along with Pacino, the cast also includes Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Josh Radnor, Kate Mulvany, Tiffany Boone, Greg Austin, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Dylan Baker, and Lena Olin.
I like how Hunters is going with diverse casting choices. Also, it’s great to see Percy Jack– I mean, Logan Lerman again.
Here’s the trailer!
Is it just me or is the trailer giving you Tarantino vibes?
The show was produced by Amazon Studios, Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment.
Weil serves as executive producer as well as the co-showrunner alongside executive producer Nikki Toscano.
The pilot was directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. He is also an executive producer, along with Win Rosenfeld from Monkeypaw; Nelson McCormick; and David Ellender, Chief Executive Officer, Sonar Entertainment.
News about Amazon picking up this project was shared back in May of 2018. It was known as The Hunt during that time. From what I can tell, the first season will consist of 10 episodes.
It is the first new scripted series picked up by Amazon since Jennifer Salke took over as the head of Amazon Studios.
“Our biggest priority is attracting exceptional writing and producing talent to bring addictive, groundbreaking projects to Prime Video,” Salke said in 2018. “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!”
