Variety reports “Hot Fuzz” and “Shaun of the Dead” duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are reuniting for the original horror-comedy series “Truth Seekers” which has been acquired by Amazon Prime Video.

The story follows a ghost-hunting duo of small business owners who uncover and film paranormal sighting across the United Kingdom. They stake out haunted churches, abandoned hospitals and similar locations using homemade ghost-detecting gadgets.

Along the way, the two uncover a global conspiracy that could threaten the human race, and their experiences grow more frequent and terrifying. Stolen Picture, who produced the horror-comedy film “Slaughterhouse Rulez” which also starred the pair, are producing the series.

Stolen Picture, Pegg and Frost will also re-team for another film, this one about a fading double act who decide to reunite with each other after years of separation.
