History tells us that the end of World War II wasn’t the end of the Nazis. Decades after the war, reports of high-ranking Nazis appeared all over the world. And in the new series “Hunters,” Al Pacino is leading a group that aims to take care of that problem.
As seen in the new trailer for Amazon’s upcoming series, “Hunters” tells the story of a man (Pacino) that brings together a rag-tag group of Nazi hunters in 1977 New York City. Their mission is simple — wipe out the remaining Nazis that have been living in the shadows since the end of WWII before the come together to start a Fourth Reich.
In addition to Pacino, the series stars Logan Lerman, Josh Radnor, Kate Mulvany, Tiffany Boone, Dylan Baker, and Lena Olin. Perhaps more interesting than the fact that “Hunters” marks the return of Pacino to the realm of TV is the fact that the series is executive produced by Jordan Peele. And if the last few years are any indication, just about everything that Peele produces turns into something you have to see.
“Hunters” debuts on Amazon Prime Video on February 21.
Here’s the synopsis:
Inspired by true events, HUNTERS follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters in 1977 New York City who discover that hundreds of escaped Nazis are living in America. And so, they do what any bad-ass vigilante squad would do: they set out on a bloody quest for revenge and justice. But they soon discover a far-reaching conspiracy and must race against time to thwart the Nazis’ new genocidal plans.
