‘Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet’ Trailer Highlights the Nerdy, Narcissistic, and Comedic Side of Making Games

“Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” is a comedy series that focuses on the development studio behind Mythic Quest, the world’s biggest and most popular multiplayer game. The game’s success is all thanks to the genius of creative director Ian Grimm (played by series co-creator Rob McElhenney). Sure, there’s also Poppy, David, Brad, Rachel, Dana, CW, Jo, and the rest of the development team to consider, but if the newly released trailer for the upcoming show is anything to go by, Grimm would prefer you believe it’s all because of him. The real challenges in “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” aren’t in-game, but in the office, and the show aims to capture all the passion, stress, and exploding watermelons you’d expect to see behind the scenes of a major game studio. Season 1’s nine episodes are coming exclusively to Apple TV+ on February 7.

Co-created by Rob McElhenney and Megan Ganz, the series stars an ensemble cast that includes F. Murray Abraham, Danny Pudi, Ashly Burch, Imani Hakim, Charlotte Nicdao, David Hornsby, and Jessie Ennis.

“Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” is executive-produced by McElhenney and Charlie 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. David Hornsby (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Megan Ganz ("Modern Family,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) also executive-produce. The series is produced by the Lionsgate/3 Arts Entertainment venture and Ubisoft.

Apple TV+ is available on iOS devices, Apple TV, Mac, select Samsung smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku, and at https://tv.apple.com. For more on Ubisoft Film & Television projects, check out our previous coverage.
