Talk about flipping the script and rewriting the narratives of America.

The movie "Get Out" was a true eye opener, not just about racism but the importance of melanin and reason behind organ harvesting of African-Americans. Jordan Peele returns with developing another racially motivated horror, suspense film but this time it's for television.

Referencing an article from The Hollywood Reporter, Jordan Peele will be producing and directing a television series called "The Hunt." The setting for the series is a 1970's drama based on factual events about a group of Nazi hunters taking justice in their own hands, as THR describes below:

"tracking and killing hundreds of Nazis who, with the unconscionable help of the U.S. government, escaped justice and embedded themselves in American society."

David Weil is penning the script and will also produce the project with Jordan Peele. As of now, the broadcasting of The Hunt does not have a network yet. Peele however, has a TV development deal with Sonar Entertainment, in association with his Monkeypaw Productions. The Hunt will be the first project off that deal, where Peele is slated to produce a numerous amount of projects.

The inspiration for The Hunt came at the helms of neo-Nazi protesting that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia back in August. Bidding for the series has already begun with potential buyers.

Jordan Peele's movie Get Out grossed over $200 million dollars globally to date, making history as the highest grossing for a debut film with its original screenplay. Peele made his mark as well, as the first melanated writer and director to gross over $100 million dollars when he debuted Get Out.
