Mike Myers is Back (x8) in Netflix Comedy 'The Pentaverate' Teaser
"You gotta do an exposé on it!" Netflix has unveiled the wacky first teaser trailer for the new comedy series called The Pentaverate (it's pronounced "pen-tav-urr-uht") the latest original creation by Mike Myers. The Pentaverate must never be exposed. His last creation was the movie The Love Guru, which ended up a huge flop, but now he's trying his hand at a series of new characters. An unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Essentially it seems like he's mocking Q and right wing conspiracy nuts. Myers will play 8 characters in total, including a Canadian journalist, a conspiracy theorist, a right wing radio host, "Lord Lordington" of The Pentaverate, an Ex-Russian oligarch, and a tech genius, among others. The series full cast includes Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders, & Lydia West. This looks wacky.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ posters) for Myers & Kirkby's The Pentaverate, direct from YouTube:
