As reported earlier, the 10-episode show, produced by Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment, will follow a group of Nazi hunters in 1977's New York City, reported Variety.
In the show a team of Nazi hunters discovers and works to stop a plot by a group of high-ranking Nazi officers who plan to create a Fourth Reich in the US.
"When David Weil first shared The Hunt (now titled Hunters) with me, I immediately knew that we had to be involved. It's cathartic. It's noir. It's frighteningly relevant. It's exactly what I want to see on television. I am thrilled to be working with Amazon in bringing this incredible vision to the world," Peele had earlier said.
