‘Truth Seekers’ Nick Frost & Samson Kayo on Their Ghostly Comedy (VIDEO)
The truth is out there.
Prime Video’s upcoming paranormal comedy-mystery series Truth Seekers explores ghosts, other supernatural beings, and even an armageddon-level conspiracy — and it all starts with two broadband installers.
Paranormal “expert” Gus (cocreator Nick Frost), who runs his own online channel for his amateur ghost hunting, is a pro at his job as a broadband fixer, and he manages to squeeze in his hobby while driving around between homes and businesses. Enter: Elton John. Not that Elton John, of course. This Elton, played by Samson Kayo, who is a newbie at Smyle. Gus is tasked with training him.
“Gus is very much a lone wolf,” Frost says during a video interview (above) with TV Insider. “He doesn’t work well with others. He doesn’t really want a partner at first, and then he’s put together with [Elton] who he [discovers] is a portal to the other side, so he actually attracts ghosts.”
“There’s an unlikely bond between the two,” adds Kayo.
This wacky horror-comedy creation is straight from the minds of Frost and his longtime collaborator Simon Pegg (who plays Elton and Gus’ boss, Dave), in addition to James Serafinowicz and Nat Saunders.
