Other Myers personas include a New England conspiracy theorist, a far-right radio broadcaster (slash conspiracy theorist…we’re seeing a pattern here), a former Russian oligarch, an ex-rock ‘n’ roll manager, a crucial Pentaverate computer genius, and the monster Lord Lordington, the head of the secret society.
Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Lydia West, and Richard McCabe feature in the six-episode comedy. Jennifer Saunders will play both a brother and a sister in the film. Jeremy Irons acts as narrator, and Rob Lowe and Maria Menounos will make special appearances.

He sets out to explore society from the inside when his coworker, Lydia West, tells him he may be meant for something greater than what he has been doing. And, as it turns out, he is, though realizing his full potential will be difficult.
The teaser warns, “There is something corrupt within the Pentaverate.”
