Jordan Peele is bringing a social-commentary-laden TV series to Amazon Prime!
Known for his films Get Out and Us, Peele is now executive producer to Hunters, an Amazon Prime original series that follows a group of vigilantes hunting down Nazis during the '70s. As if Peele wasn't enough for appeal, the group will be led by none other than the multi-award winning actor Al Pacino.
Check out the series' trailer below:
In the trailer, we see Al Pacino giving a speech to the so-called Hunters, making a call to action because a "great darkness" lurks in their midst. "The time to act is now before everything we hold dear to us is destroyed." says Al Pacino in the trailer, "This is not murder. This is mitzvah. Welcome to the hunt."
Also check out the series' official synopsis below:
"Inspired by true events, Hunters follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters in 1977 New York City who discover that hundreds of escaped Nazis are living in America. And so, they do what any bad-ass vigilante squad would do: they set out on a bloody quest for revenge and justice. But they soon discover a far-reaching conspiracy and must race against time to thwart the Nazis’ new genocidal plans."
Produced by Jordan Peele, the series is directed by David Weil. Along with Al Pacino, the series also stars Josh Radnor, Logan Lerman, Carol Kane, Kate Mulvany, Dylan Baker, and Lena Olin to name a few. Its official release date has not been revealed, but it is slated for a 2020 premiere.
