Reduce-off date experiences that Sonar Entertainment (which is producing the series with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions) used to be in talks with one other network sooner than Amazon jumped in.

It also comes after Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has reportedly pushed the studio to focal level on bigger, extra mainstream shows.
Peele, meanwhile, who lately gained the Finest Contemporary Screenplay Oscar for writing Accumulate Out, has a new film in the works and will be producing Lovecraft Nation for HBO.
“When David Weil first shared The Hunt with me, I straight knew that we needed to be fervent,” Peele talked about in an announcement. “It’s cathartic. It’s noir. It’s frighteningly connected. It’s precisely what I would like to contemplate on tv. I am extremely joyful to be working with Amazon in bringing this unheard of imaginative and prescient to the world.”
