“Percy Jackson” alum Logan Lerman is set to star in the Jordan Peele-produced Amazon drama “The Hunt.”
Set in 1977 New York City, “The Hunt” centers on a group known as The Hunters, who discover that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials have been conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. and set out on a bloody quest to bring them to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.
Lerman is set to play Jonah Heidelbaum, who, when his grandmother is slain by a mysterious intruder in their apartment, 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 U.S. under assumed identities.
Created and written by David Weil, the 10-episode series is executive produced by Peele via his Monkeypaw Productions banner. Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni executive produce for Sonar Entertainment alongside Win Rosenfeld of Monkeypaw.
The series marks Lerman’s first series regular role since he starred in the WB’s “Jack & Bobby” in 2004. His other credits include the “Percy Jackson” film series, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and last year’s “The Vanishing of Sidney Hall.”

Christmas came a little early for nostalgic gamers this year, with Amazon teaming up with Sega to re-release 25 classic games, including “Sonic the Hedgehog” and “Streets of Rage.”
The games will be available in a Sega Classics bundle for Amazon Fire TV customers and will cost $14.99. Sega fans won’t need to buy any consoles or controllers to relive their childhood, they can use their Fire TV remotes to play the games.
The bundle comes months after Sega Genesis celebrated its 30th anniversary. The console was Sega’s top gaming system until the Saturn debuted in Japan in 1994.
“Sonic,” Sega’s trademark franchise, clearly leads the way, but gamers have plenty of other old-school options to choose from, like the first three editions of both “Golden Axe” and “Streets of Rage.”
The Sega bundle follows a retro trend set by PlayStation and Nintendo in recent years. The NES Classic has been an especially big hit for Nintendo — outselling Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and its own Switch console in June.
As for Amazon, the Sega bundle adds to its growing push into video games. Most notably Twitch, its live streaming platform, has become a mainstay for gamers by broadcasting eSports competitions.
Below is a complete list of the 25 games that’ll launch today in the “Classics” bundle:
Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, The Revenge of Shinobi, Ristar, Golden Axe I-III, Beyond Oasis, Decap Attack, ESWAT: City Under Siege, Streets of Rage I-III, Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Headdy, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, Columns, Bio-Hazard Battle, Comix Zone, Alien Storm, Bonanza Bros, Gain Ground, Altered Beast, Sonic Spinball.
These are the deals you’re looking for. Today’s Amazon Gold Box offers 30 percent off a bunch of Star Wars toys, including lightsabers, blasters, and action figures. Read more…
