Netflix's 'The Pentaverate' Trailer Sees Mike Myers Playing Eight Different Characters

Netflix has dropped off the official trailer for The Pentaverate, an upcoming comedy series starring Mike Myers that centers on a secret society with five members.

The trailer arrives shortly after Myers created an official Instagram account, where he has posted several images with fives in them, including NYC’s 5 train, a five-dollar bill, a Five Guys store and more.

Myers notably takes on eight different roles in the series, which will arrive with six half-hour episodes, alongside a cast that includes Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders and Lydia West.

“What if a secret society of five men has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347?” Netflix’s official description reads. “As this new series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself. Remember, the Pentaverate must never be exposed!”

The series is directed by Tom Kirby and executive produced by Myers, Kirby, John Lyons, Tony Hernandez and Lilly Burns for Jax Media and Jason Weinberg.

The Pentaverate premieres on May 5. Watch the trailer above.
