Netflix has announced an ambitious-sounding new limited series in which Mike Myers will play 7 different characters. The show is called The Pentaverate, and it’s a comedy series about a secret society that has been controlling events of the world since 1347.
The Pentaverate is the titular society, named after its five members. “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?” reads a line from its description. “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. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed!”
In addition to Myers, the show will feature Ken Jeong (The Hangover), Keegan-Michael Key (Lion King), Debi Mazar (Goodfellas), Richard McCabe (Eye in the Sky), Jennifer Saunders (Death on the Nile), and Lydia West (Years and Years). Netflix’s news release didn’t give any details on the characters that each actor will play.
