Mike Myers and Pentaverate director Tim Kirby in their comedy series
With The Pentaverate now streaming on Netflix, I recently spoke with Mike Myers and director Tim Kirkby about the making of the six-part comedy series. Created by Myers, the series follows a Canadian journalist who uncovers a secret society that has been influencing world events for the greater good since the Black Death of 1347.
As you may have seen in the trailers, Myers plays eight different roles ranging from a far-right radio host to a former Russian oligarch to a former Australian media mogul. The Pentaverate also stars Ken Jeong, Debi Mazar, Lydia West, Rob Lowe, Key Keegan-Michael, Rob Lowe, Maria Menounosand is told by Jeremy Irons.
During the interview, Myers and Kirkby talked about how the show went, why Myers wanted Kirkby to direct the show and how he added to the episodes, why Myers likes working with people from England, the first thing you should look at if you’ve ever seen their work, how The Six Million Dollar Man theme and Sasquatch ended up on the show, and how they got a Billie Eilish song in episode four. Plus, Myers explains why he’s only taken on smaller roles over the past decade.
Check out what they had to say in the player above, and below is exactly what we talked about.
