Comedian Mike Myers, playing off of the Law of Fives, has announced a six episode TV series on Netflix, The Pentaverate, Deadline reports. On Instagram, Myers "posted the teaser at 5:55 a.m. PT, announcing that The Pentaverate will debut 5/5."
"Created by Myers and directed by Tim Kirkby, the series asks, 'What if a secret society of five men — aka The Pentaverate — has been working to influence world events for the greater good since the Black Plague of 1347?' As the series begins, one unlikely Canadian journalist (Myers) finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth and just possibly save the world himself."
In Illuminatus!, the Illuminati are run by five people.
Myers plays eight different roles. Look for an eye in a pyramid in the trailer.
Hat tip, Jesse Walker, who writes on Twitter, "Austin Powers' The Da Vinci Code."
