            (************************************************************** (The trailer forMythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet.****************************************** Yesterday, Apple solidified its most. high-profile 01575879 original series debut so far:Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquetis a half-hour comedy from the team behindIt’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,and all nine episodes of the show’s first season will be available to subscribers of the new streaming service on February 7, (********************************************************.

For fans of modern TV comedy, the cast and crew involved might be particularly exciting.Sunnyalums Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day are executive producers, and McElhenney and Megan Ganz (Sunny, Community, Modern Family) co-created the series. On camera, McElhenney stars as the fictional game company creative director, Ian Grimm, and the rest of the cast is equally delightful: Danny Pudi (Abed on************Community) and F. Murray Abraham (Dar Adal onHomeland) headline an ensemble withImani Hakim(Everybody Hates Chris) ,Charlotte Nicdao(Thor: Ragnarok,************ (David Hornsby) ************** (Cricket onSunny), Ashly Burch(an actual video game actor inLife Is Strange), and (Jessie Ennis) ************** ( Better Call Saul. . The series is a collaborative production between Lionsgate, 3 Arts Entertainment … and Ubisoft, which debuted a teaser back at E3 (********************************************************.

The basic premise sets upMythic Questas a massively popular medieval-styled MMORPG on the brink of pushing out its first major expansion. (Hmmm,MQkinda-sorta sounds familiar. We see Ian Grimm (McElhenney) and his team watching a trailer for this release that puts the game in totally appropriate cultural context. “When we think of cultural touchstones, we think ofET, Star Wars, Avatar, and yet our industry drawers the entertainment business,” Grimm says, moments before appearing shirtless in what appears to be a gladiator-type arena. “When we think about legends, why not think aboutMythic Quest?”

Sunnyhas always been a particular brand of humor. , so maybe “your mileage may vary” should be the expectations forMythic Questonce it launches early next year. But either way, it’s yet another example in what’s been a growing, recent string of game developer portrayals in the second half of the decade. AMC’sHalt and Catch Fire( might be the pinnacle of these, with Kotaku UKeven calling it the only show that even got games right (likely not a goal forMythic Quest) . But HBO’sSilicon Valleyhad a few recurring game development characters, the lead in Netflix’sRussian Dollis a game developer, and in the last two years NBC debuted then cancelled a series calledI Feel Badthat used a game development company as its setting for office-place humor. WhereverMythic Questfalls in that spectrum, we’re at least safely assuming these developers won’t end up in a time loop where all roads lead to destruction ( ala Netflix’s also game-developer-centric,(Bandersnatch) **************).
