Mike Myers, know for the Austin Powers and Wayne’s World franchises, is at it again. It’s been a while since we saw the Shrek actor out and acting. The Love Guru really stifled his momentum in a huge way. Now Myers is ready for his big return and he’s playing a ton of characters.
Netflix announced that Mike Myers will star in a new limited series called “The Pentaverate.” He will play seven different character in the series. The logline for this new series reads as follows, and it sounds incredibly interesting.
What is 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 the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverte must never be exposed!
This series will also feature Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Kay, Debi Mazar, and others. Mike Myers is creator and executive producer on the project. Obviously, this is his greater creative vision coming together.
Netflix has agreed to six hour-long episodes for this limited series. We have no idea if there will be more, hence the term “limited series.”
