Apple takes new approach with ‘Mythic Quest’ launch plan

Apple TV+ is to drop all nine episodes of its upcoming comedy series Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet in one go when it launches on 7 February.

The launch plan stands in contrast to other Apple TV+ series, like The Morning Show, See and For All Mankind, which have been released on a weekly basis.

Mythic Quest is co-created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia). The 9 x 30 minute series is produced by Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment and Ubisoft.

It follows a team of video game developers as they navigate the challenges of running a popular video game. In addition to McElhenney, who stars as the fictional company’s creative director, Ian Grimm, the ensemble cast also includes Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, David Hornsby, Ashly Burch, and Jessie Ennis.

Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is executive produced by McElhenney and Day under their RCG banner; Michael Rotenberg and Nicholas Frenkel on behalf of 3Arts; and Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Gérard Guillemot, for Ubisoft Film & Television.

Hornsby (Always Sunny In Philadelphia) and Megan Ganz (Modern Family) also executive produce.
