Back in the day, two iconic characters by the names of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck taught me the value of a good hunt with Rabbit Season and Duck Season, respectively. Now, Al Pacino is poised to school us all on the merits hunting a different kind of animal … “God damn Nazis,” as Mr. Pacino puts it in the new trailer for HUNTERS.
Executive produced by Jordan Peele and created by David Weil, Amazon Prime has revealed that HUNTERS will make its streaming debut on February 21st! Set in a 1977 New York City, HUNTERS centers on a team of street-level Nazi “Hunters,” who’ve discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials have secretly been living in the United States with plans to establish a Fourth Reich in the Land of the Free.
Weil and Nikki Toscano will act as co-showrunners and executive producers for the series, which has Logan Lerman (FURY, INDIGNATION) and Al Pacino leading the series as Jonah Heidelbaum and Meyer Offerman, respectively. Joining them for the Nazi-stomping drama are Jerrika Hinton (THE ROOMATE, THE STRANGELY NORMAL), Josh Radnor (HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE), Kate Mulvaney (THE GREAT GATSBY, THE LITTLE DEATH), Carol Kane (SCROOGED, THE UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT, Tiffany Boone (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, ONCE UPON A TIME), Louis Ozawa Chanchien (KIDDING, PREDATORS), Saul Rubinek (UNFORGIVEN, TRUE ROMANCE), Dylan Baker (TRICK ‘R’ TREAT, SELMA), and Lena Olin CHOCOLAT, ALIAS).
Peele, Pacino, and Nazi-smashing, you say? Count me the f*ck in! I don’t know about you, but I’m totally getting an INGLORIOUS BASTERDS vibe from this trailer, and I can’t wait to meet Meyers’ rag-tag group of revenge-seeking rabble-rousers.
Nazi Hunting Season opens when HUNTERS arrives on Amazon Prime this February 21st!
