Mike Myers will star in and executive produce a new comedy series for Netflix.
The show is being billed as a limited series and will comprise six episodes. Myers will play multiple characters in the show — just like he did in the Austin Powers franchise — though it’s unclear whether the show will be sketch comedy or a more episodic series.
“I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in,” Myers said in a statement.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, this marks the first narrative TV show of Myers’ career. His previous work in television includes a storied stint on Saturday Night Live between 1989 and 1995, while more recently he was tapped to host ABC’s revival of The Gong Show, though he did so in-character as an “unknown British comedian” named Tommy Maitland.
