<p><img alt="Shaun of the Dead Edgar Wright Nick Frost Simon Pegg" src="/images_arrownews/shaunfp.jpg" title="" /></p> <p>Last year, <a href="http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/reviews/shaun-of-the-dead">SHAUN OF THE DEAD</a> stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost formed their own production company, called Stolen Picture. The first Stolen Picture feature is director Crispian Mills&#39; horror comedy <a href="http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/tag/slaughterhouse-rulez/">SLAUGHTERHOUSE RULEZ</a> (which is about fracking unleashing a demon on a boarding school), and now that the film is in post-production Pegg and Frost are working on the first Stolen Picture television series... which is also a horror comedy project.</p> <p>At first, the pair thought they would only be producing movies, but they came to realize that&nbsp;</p> <blockquote> <p>In terms of where the money is being made, and creatively, making episodic television is now no less nourishing than a two-hour movie.&quot;</p> </blockquote> <p>Backed by Sony Pictures Television, Stolen Picture is diving into TV land with a show called <span style="color:#FF0000;">Truth Seekers</span>, which is&nbsp;</p> <blockquote> <p>about a three-person paranormal investigation team.</p> <p>Each installment of &ldquo;Truth Seekers&rdquo; will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential.&nbsp;</p> </blockquote> <p>Pegg had this to say about the concept:&nbsp;</p> <blockquote> <p>Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something. It&rsquo;ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It&rsquo;s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. &lsquo;Shaun of the Dead&rsquo; was a very parochial story set in North London and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.&quot;</p> </blockquote> <p>The description of Truth Seekers doesn&#39;t give much to go on at this point, it sounds like a lot of shows we&#39;ve already had, but I&#39;ll give anything from Pegg and Frost a chance. Especially when they&#39;re genre projects.</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="369" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Xku5-r3A_1w" width="656"></iframe></p>
