Ubisoft’s mysterious Apple TV+ series Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet will soon see as the light of day. Apple has revealed the video game spoof debut on February 7th. With all the nine episodes of the season will available at the same time. The story is the brainchild of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia creators Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, and tracks game developers as they ‘navigate the challenges’ of running a major video game.
And plenty of familiar names are attached beyond McElhenney (who also stars as the developer’s creative lead) and Day. Philadelphia alumni David Hornsby and Megan Ganz are executive producing, while the cast includes Hornsby as well as F. Murray Abraham and video game actress Ashly Burch (Horizon Zero Dawn and Life is Strange).
Mythic Quest is an unusual thing to the Apple TV+ lineup, which has mostly focused on serious dramas and children’s programmings. It also an unusual addition among streaming shows. There have certainly shows based on games. But not often that you see a riff on game developments. We would not count on that being the video game be equivalent to Silicon Valley, but the creative talent involved is promising.
