Information on the characters are yet to be revealed, however reports have stated that the show is currently in production and will include six episodes. The half-hour series will see “five men have been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347. As the show begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself.”
Joining Myers in the cast are Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders and Lydia West. The lead actor will also serve as executive producer alongside director Tim Kirby, John Lyons, Tony Hernandez, Lilly Burns and Jason Weinberg.
For those unaware, Myers previously referenced The Pentaverate in his 1993 movie So I Married an Axe Murderer. He portrayed father and son duo Charlie Mackenzie and Stuart, with the latter claiming that The Pentaverate consists of “The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up.”
Stay tuned for a trailer and release date.
