The Pentaverate is now available on Netflix. I recently spoke with Mike Myers and director Tim Kirkby about developing the six-episode comedy series. The series follows a Canadian journalist who discovers a secret society that has influenced world events for the greater benefit since the Black Plague of 1347.
Myers has eight roles, from a far-right radio host to an ex-Russian politician, to a former Australian media mogul. Ken Jeong, Debi Mazar, Lydia West, Rob Lowe, Keegan-Michael Key, Rob Lowe, and Maria Menounos are among the stars in the pentaverate, according to Jeremy Irons.
Myers and Kirkby talked about how the series happened, why he wanted Kirkby to direct the series, and why he added to the episodes, why Myers liked working with people from England, and how the theme and Sasquatch ended up in the series, and why they got a Billie Eilish song in episode 4.
Check out what they had to say in the player above, and here''s exactly what we''ve discussed.
