Mike Myers uncovers Illuminati-style secret society in Netflix conspiracy comedy The Pentaverate

Netflix unveiled the second trailer for its six-episode conspiracy comedy The Pentaverate – premiering May 5 – that was created by and stars Emmy-winning writer Mike Myers.

The 58-year-old Canadian comedian enlisted SNL’s Emmy-winning make-up artists Louie Zakarian and Jason Milani in order to transform into eight distinct characters for the show.

Mike’s main protagonist comes in the form of Ken Scarborough, a reporter who loses his job at CACA News Toronto and sets off to expose an Illuminati-style secret society called The Pentaverate.

Aside from Ken, Myers plays a New England conspiracy theorist, a far-right radio host, a tech genius, and all four Pentaverate members including Alice Cooper’s former manager Shep Gordon.

Tim Kirkby directed the limited series inspired by a bit in Thomas Schlamme’s 1993 black rom-com, So I Married an Axe Murderer, which starred the SNL veteran.

But now, Debi Mazar – who played Susan in Axe Murderer – plays the Pentaverate’s highly trusted executive assistant Patty Davis.
