Jordan Peele Is Executive Producing A Series About The Real Life Hunting Of Nazis
Earlier this month, it was reported that Jordan Peele and Spike Lee are teaming up for a film adaptation of a real-life Black infiltrator of the Ku Klux Klan. As Black Klansmen is headed to production, the Get Out director and Key and Peele co-creator has landed another project that also deals with bringing down hate groups.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Jordan Peele is currently shopping a network home for The Hunt. Intended as a series, this is another real-life story dramatically adapted. The Hunt traces the 1970s search and in some cases, the assassination of German Nazis. These were former Nazi Party members who were living in the United States, reportedly with protection from the government.
Sources told THR, “The package started going around town following the Charlottesville, Virginia, neo-Nazi protest and counter-protest.”
Peele will be an executive producer, as his Monkey Paw studio works in tandem with Sonar Entertainment.
