Apple’s workplace comedy series, Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, returns today with the debut of Mythic Quest: Quarantine, a special new episode written, filmed and edited in quarantine.
The new half-hour installment finds the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all time tasked with working from home. Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao) and Ian (Rob McElhenney) struggle with solitude, while Brad (Danny Pudi) and David (David Hornsby) start a charitable competition. Assistant Jo (Jessie Ennis) tries to explain video-conferencing to CW (F. Murray Abraham) with mixed results. To produce the episode, the cast and crew worked remotely in multiple locations across the country.
Mythic Quest: Quarantine is written by star, co-creator and executive producer Rob McElhenney, co-creator and executive producer Megan Ganz, and executive producer and star David Hornsby. It reunites the ensemble cast including McElhenney, Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham, Charlotte Nicdao, Danny Pudi, Imani Hakim, Ashly Burch, David Hornsby, Craig Mazin, Naomi Ekperigin, Caitlin McGee, Jessie Ennis and Humphrey Ker.
Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is executive produced by McElhenney and 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.
