Mike Myers' Netflix Series 'The Pentaverate' Adds Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key
The Canadian will play seven new characters across six episodes
Published Jun 08, 2021In 2019, we learned that Mike Myers would make a move to Netflix with a new original series, and more details on the production have now surfaced.
Myers' forthcoming series has been titled The Pentaverate, and it will feature six half-hour episodes in which the Canadian will play seven brand new characters. Newly revealed cast members include Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders and Lydia West.
An abstract for the series, which is currently in production, reads as follows:
What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347? As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself.
Myers devotees will surely recall a mention of "The Pentaverate" in 1993's So I Married an Axe Murderer, made by his character Stuart MacKenzie. In that film, Stuart claims the secret society included "the Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys, the Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up."
The Pentaverate is directed by Tim Kirkby, who also executive produced alongside Myers, John Lyons, Tony Hernandez, Lilly Burns and Jason Weinberg.
