Festivals - Canneseries 2020 : Truth Seekers – Nick Frost's press roundtable
Par Mulder, London (Zoom Meeting), le 14.10.2020
Truth Seekers is a supernatural comedy-drama featuring a team of paranormal investigators who team up to film ghostly apparitions across the UK and share them on an online video channel. As they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers and abandoned hospitals with their homemade ghost-detection gadgets, supernatural experiences become more frequent, more terrifying and even deadly, leading them to uncover a conspiracy that could spark the Apocalypse.
Set in a mysterious world filled with terrifying monsters, Truth Seekers mixes styles from hilarious to very scary scenes through an exciting story. The series stars Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D'Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen. Truth Seekers, from the same minds that revealed Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Sick Note and Paul, is co-written by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz, who is producing it alongside Miles Ketley and director Jim Field Smith.
During a press roundtable organized during the Canneseries festival, we had the opportunity to discuss with Nick Frost about the new Amazon Prime Video Truth Seekers series.
