Al Pacino has acted since the 1960s, but he has never played in a television series in a recurring role. It can change soon. Deadline and others report that the Oscar-winning actor will star in Amazon’s new Nazi hunting program, The Hunt, which comes from the idea of Get Out author director Jordan Peele.
Pacino appeared in an episode of the TV series N.Y.P.D. back in 1968, but this is the first time he is in a television series on a recurring basis. He joins the actor Logan Lerman in The Hunt.
Lerman plays a character out of blood after his grandmother was murdered, while Pacino portrays the mentor to Lerman’s character. The hunt is set in 1
977 New York City, when a group of people called hunters track down Nazis who live secretly in the United States hoping to establish a fourth kingdom in America.
Peele produces the hunt through his Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment Labels. Moonfall’s David Weil created the show, and he will write and execute the produce show. Amazon has ordered 10 episodes by The Hunt, but there is no word yet when the program will fly or that will otherwise steal in it.
Peele is known for his comedy show Key & Peele, but he reached another success level with the horror movie Get Out, for which he won an Oscar. He keeps himself busy, except that he has a scary new movie, Us, comes out and he also works with the new Twilight Zone that will fly on the GameSpot sister network CBS All Access.
Amazon Studios has a number of exciting projects in progress, including a very expensive Lord of the Ring TV show that can focus on a young Aragorn.
