Josh Radnor joins Jordan Peele’s The Hunt series for Amazon
Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother, Rise, Mercy Street) has joined Jordan Peele’s The Hunt drama series for Amazon, Deadline has confirmed.
The series has been given a direct-to-series order and will have 10 hour-long episodes. The Hunt will tell the story of a group known as the Hunters living in New York City in 1977. The Hunters discover that hundreds of former high-ranking Nazi officials are living among them and conspiring to create the Fourth Reich in the U.S. The group then sets out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans. The story is inspired by real-life events.
Radnor, best known for his role as Ted Mosby in How I Met Your Mother and recently starred in NBC’s Rise, will play Lonny Flash, a movie star who’s secretly a member of Meyer’s (Al Pacino) organization.
The actor joins an A-list cast including Logan Lerman as Jonah Heidelbaum and Al Pacino, making it his first-ever television role. Emmy Award-nominated actor Dylan Baker (The Good Wife), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy), Greg Austin (Class), Catherine Tate (The Office), Tiffany Boone (Beautiful Creatures), and Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13) will also star along with Academy Award nominees Lena Olin (Enemies) and Carol Kane (Hester Street).
Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment are producing The Hunt, while Peele and Win Rosenfeld (Dark Net) are executive producing for Monkeypaw. Tom Lesinski (Mr. Mercedes) and Jenna Santoianni for Sonar will also serve as executive producers.
The Hunt will premiere worldwide when it debuts on Amazon. As of now, there is no set release date.
