Amazon Picks Up Jordan Peele's The Hunters
Jordan Peele's new series, The Hunt, has found a home over at Amazon Studios. The series has received a 10-episode order.
The series plot will take place in 1977 and follow a group of Nazi Hunters living in New York City. The group sets out to find and bring some of the hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials that are living amongst them and bring them to justice.
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said, "Our biggest priority is attracting exceptional writing and producing talent to bring addictive, groundbreaking projects to Prime Video. 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!"
"When David Weil first shared The Hunt with me, I immediately knew that we had to be involved," Peele said. "It's cathartic. It's noir. It's frighteningly relevant. It's exactly what I want to see on television. I am thrilled to be working with Amazon in bringing this incredible vision to the world."
Peele's Get Out earned an Oscar for Best Orginal Screenplay and Nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director.
"Jordan Peele and Monkeypaw Productions have exhibited a unique ability to develop content that becomes part of the larger cultural conversation. We're also very excited that The Hunt will be on Amazon, which we feel is the ideal platform for Jordan and David's amazing story", said Tom Lesinski, CEO of Sonar Entertainment.
