An 11-year-old history buff named Kevin finds a time egress in his wardrobe in Time Bandits, the first-ever television adaptation of the cult classic movie of the same name that’s in the works for Apple. Created by Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), Iain Morris (The Inbetweeners) and Taika Waititi (Reservation Dogs), Time Bandits will premiere globally with the first two episodes on July 24, followed by two new episodes every Wednesday through August 21, according to Deadline.

Guided by Friends actress Lisa Kudrow, the crew of bandits embark on epic adventures while evil forces threaten their conquests, and life as they know it. As the group transports through time and space, the gang stumbles upon fascinating worlds of the distant past while seeking out treasure, depending on Kevin to shed light on each situation. The “Time Bandits” witness the creation of Stonehenge, see the Trojan Horse in action, escape dinosaurs in the prehistoric ages, wreak havoc during medieval times, experience the Ice Age, ancient civilizations and the Harlem Renaissance, and much more along the way.


Apple demonstrated how much confidence in the series that they even shut off the comments on the YouTube trailer.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
