The actor’s new Amazon series about renegade Nazi hunters is loosely inspired by actual events but has more in common with comic books and ’70s action flicks. When Logan Lerman was offered the lead in “Hunters,” he did what all actors do: He cast about for inspiration. For portions, he had only to look inward. Like him, his character Jonah Heidelbaum was Jewish, allowing Lerman to draw from experience both personal and inherited.

Hunters on Amazon Prime Video
It is a fact known to even the dogs and cats in the street that more than 500 new scripted shows aired on network, cable and streaming in the U.S. in 2019. That figure excludes non-English language shows and PBS. It also doesn’t include Canada, where effort is mustered annually and a handful of new series get made.
