Ubisoft has partnered with Rob McElhenney (and several other fine folks from the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia crew) to create a gaming television show. It’s not going to be a chat show or something like that, mind; instead, it’s going to be set at a fictional game studio that has made an MMORPG called Mythic Quest. This will be the basis of the show Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet.
We then got to see a trailer for the show right before Mythic Quest was about to launch the game’s first expansion Raven’s Banquet. A cheesy video played out before it was revealed that the cast of the show was watching an egocentric commercial centered on Rob McElhenney’s character which culminates in a ridiculous (and worryingly-long) shirtless scene. (Hey, if you look as good as Mr. McElhenney, I can’t exactly blame him for writing that one into the show.)
Speaking of characters, here is the cast of Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet as noted on Wikipedia:
- Rob McElhenney as Ian Grimm
- F. Murray Abraham as C.W. Longbottom
- Imani Hakim as Dana
- David Hornsby as David
- Danny Pudi as Brad
- Ashly Burch as Rachel
- Charlotte Nicdao as Poppy
- Jessie Ennis as Jo
The show was created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Megan Ganz — all veterans of the cult classic television show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet will be coming to Apple TV Plus. You can watch the first look at this brand-new show below.
