FIRST LOOK: The Pentaverate on Netflix – Official Trailer

Mike Myers is back to his famous shenanigans with a brand new series for Netflix, The Pentaverate. Pronounced pen-tav-urr-uht, the log line reads: “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? 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!” Check out the trailer, narrated by Jeremy Irons, below, and catch the new series on May 5th.

Co-stars include Ken Jeong as Skip Cho, a casino mogul with extensive knowledge in the chaos theory of weather patterns. Keegan-Michael Key as Dr. Hobart Clark, A nuclear physicist, recruited into the Pentaverate to resolve the climate change disaster. Debi Mazar as Patty Davis, the highly trusted Executive Assistant to the Pentaverate — some would say the brains behind the whole operation. Richard McCabe as Exalted Pikeman Higgins, Head of the Liechtenstein Guard, the Pentaverate’s security force. Jennifer Saunders will appear as both The Maester of Dubrovnik and Saester of Dubrovnik. The Maester of Dubrovnik is the head investigator for the Pentaverate, who is summoned from his ancestral home in Dubrovnik to investigate the suspicious deaths. The Saester of Dubrovnik is the Maester’s sister and protector of the parce clavem, the spare key for the Pentaverate’s voting apparatus, which is hidden in Dubrovnik. It’s A Sin‘s Lydia West will play Reilly Clayton, a young woman working at the Canadian News Station with Ken. She goes on the adventure with him to expose the Pentaverate — all while hiding a secret of her own…

  • Rex Smith: A far-right radio host and highly prominent conspiracy theorist
  • Lord Lordington: The Pentaverate’s oldest and highest-ranking member.

  • Mishu Ivanov: Ex-Russian oligarch
  • Shep Gordon: Former Rock-N-Roll manager
