The Hunt

Recommended Posts

The Hunt is an upcoming American drama web television series set to premiere on Amazon Video. On May 17, 2018, it was announced that Amazon Video had given the production a straight-to-series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was created by David Weil who was set to executive produce alongside Jordan Peele and others.

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."

He did Angels in America, and a number of TV movies, so it probably wasn't a HUGE stretch for this.

And the casting continues - I am really starting to get excited about this show;
