Apple Shares 'First Look' at 'Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet' Ahead of Friday Launch

Apple today shared a "first look" video featuring "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet," an upcoming Apple TV Plus show that's set to debut on Friday, February 7.

"Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet" follows a team of video game developers navigating the challenges of running a popular World of Warcraft-style video game.


The series was created by Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, known for their work on long running series "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Day doesn't star in the show, but McElhenney plays the video game director.

In the first look spot, McElhenney says the show is a "testament to the madness that is a video game development company." David Hornsby, who plays Cricket on "Always Sunny" and has a role in the new series, says the show "comes from the people that make Always Sunny," which "gives the flavor for a lot of the comedy."


Apple has ordered nine half-hour episodes, and when "Mythic Quest" debuts, it will be one of the first comedy shows on the ‌Apple TV‌+ service, joining existing shows that include "Dickinson," "For All Mankind," "See," "Servant," and "The Morning Show."

It hurts me to see how many billions get pumped into this crap instead of trying to find the next big innovation.
Apple can obviously walk and chew gum at the same time.

It doesn't seem healthy to willingly let a tech company have the power to hurt you so easily.

Yeah because the product engineering guys have turned the lights off in the R&D labs and are all busy building props on the set of Mythic Quest ?

Yeah I know, that trillion dollar company should be working on the new 2020 emojis and not other stuff, since they can only do one thing at a time

Yes, they can. Apparently except for when they throw all the developers at iPhones instead of Macs for a while (they seem to be bouncing back from that now though).
