According to Deadline, Pacino is close to closing a deal to star in Jordan Peele's The Hunt, which will premiere on Amazon.

Set in 1977, The Hunt tells the story of a group of Nazi hunters who set out to stop a group of high ranking Nazi officials from creating a Fourth Reich in America.

Al Pacino, the legendary Oscar-winning actor known for his memorable performances in The Godfather, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Glengarry Glen Ross, Scent Of A Woman, Carlito's Way, Heat, The Insider, Angels In America and I could go on, seems to be getting closer to making his television debut. Pacino's deal should be done this week and he'll become the latest movie star to line up for a series. Amazon has ordered 10 episodes of The Hunt, but there is no word yet on when the program will air or who else will star in it. He joins actor Logan Lerman in The Hunt. Nikki Toscano executive produces and co-showruns with Weil.


He is repped by CAA.

Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment are producing The Hunt, while Peele and Win Rosenfeld (Dark Net) are executive producing for Monkeypaw. When his grandmother is slain by a mysterious intruder in their apartment, Jonah sets out to track the culprit, only to find himself swept up in the mysterious organization known as The Hunt, a group of justice-seeking individuals dedicated to rooting out the Nazi murderers living in the USA under assumed identities. Moonfall's David Weil created the show, and he'll write and executive produce the show. Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni from Sonar Entertainment will also executive produce, with Monkeypaw and Sonar producing.
