Washington [US]: ‘Friends’ reputation Lisa Kudrow could be seen gambling a pivotal function in Apple’s collection ‘Time Bandits’.
According to Variety, other than Lisa, the collection can even be superstar Kal-El Tuck, Charlyne Yi, Tadhg Murphy, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rune Temte, Kiera Thompson, and Rachel House. The 10-episode collection is touted as “a comedic journey thru time and area with a ragtag institution of thieves and their newest recruit: an eleven-12 months-antique history nerd (Tuck).”
Taika Waititi co-wrote the pilot for the series and will also direct the first episodes. He executive produces with Jemaine Clement, Iain Morris, and Garrett Basch at the side of Handmade Films. Clement and Morris also co-wrote with Waititi. “Time Bandits” is produced by using Paramount Television Studios, Anonymous Content’s AC Studios, and MRC Television.
“Time Bandits” was first reported as being in development at Apple in 2018, with Waititi coming onboard in 2019.
