That must have been a hell of a pitch by Weil and Peele to get Pacino on television.

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;

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.

Hinton is poised play Millie Malone, a gutsy FBI agent who’s marginalized in the Bureau because of her race and gender. Olin is in final talks to play a Nazi.

What’s The Hunt About?

Per Amazon, “The Hunt follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City.

HOW ROXY FITS IN WITH THE REST OF THE HUNTERS
“Once you watch the whole thing, you see she’s one of only technically two of the hunters that really doesn’t have a personal connection to the Holocaust. So it’s strange to just have this former Black Panther, single mom being out here, killing Nazis… At the beginning, for her, it’s about providing for her daughter. And then, because she is an activist at the end of the day, she is fighting for freedom for all people… And she slowly realizes that she has to fight for all people in order to make a better world for her daughter. [Laughs] At first, it looks a little like, ‘Why is this girl with this Afro, these bell-bottoms, this shirt zipped all the way down to her belly button, why is she out here, trying to kill Nazis?’ And then it becomes clear, once you get to know her.”

THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN MIA AND ROXY
“Hunters is the first time I played a mother, and then I went straight into playing Mia… Growing up and having a single mom, and seeing the sacrifices that she had to make, I have so much respect for mothers in general. Both of these characters do whatever it takes to protect their child and make a better life for their child. They put their lives on the line.”

PLAYING OPPOSITE PACINO
“I already loved [Hunters] before I knew he was attached… The first scene where I actually interact with him, I’m yelling at him. After the first take, I was like — I think I said it to Louis [Ozawa], who plays Joe — I was like, ‘I just shouted at Al. Do you think I was too loud? Do you think he’s upset?’ At first, it’s really intimidating! But once you get to know Al, as an actor, he wants to be challenged… And also, he’s just the sweetest person ever.

THAT SCENE IN HUNTERS’ EPISODE 5
[A brief and gross editorial note: While Pacino’s Meyer Offerman is trying to get a suspected Nazi to talk, he tortures her by making her eat dung. Roxy is a witness.]
“First of all, the manure is hummus and food coloring and something else. But I mean, as many times as you tell yourself, ‘It’s hummus,’ it doesn’t matter: It’s still disgusting… [Pacino] improvised a lot of that scene. He would keep going five minutes after the last word was written on the page… He was trying to push Barbara [Sukowa, the actress playing the Nazi] to spit on him… [If I and co-star Josh Radnor] look confused, like ‘What the hell is happening?,’ we were not acting… [Laughs] As crazy as it seemed to you guys, it was, like, 10 times crazier in the moment.”
