Deadline wrote the following details about the Netflix project:
The series asks ‘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 the 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!
He played the title character and Dr. Evil in all of those hysterical movies, which I can’t recommend enough.
Now, he’s taking his talents to Netflix for a comedy series that will also see him play multiple roles. Yeah, as a fan of “Austin Powers,” you really don’t have to say much more to convince me that it’s likely going to be great.
There’s no exact release date known at this time, but the fact we’re only just learning about casting decisions is a sign we’re not very close. Still, it’s another sign that Netflix is out to dominate the streaming wars!
