- Apple TV+ series "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet" lands February 7.
- Rob McElhenney is producing and starring.
- He says Apple is "really helpful" during the production process.
When "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet" lands on Apple TV+ next month it will be the streaming service's first comedy show. And in an interview with Variety McElhenney notes Apple's impact on the production of the show.
While some have previously said that Apple executives have meddled in the production of shows, McElhenney couldn't be happier with the company's input. Despite there having been issues that needed working out.
Notable is his assertion that Apple's input has helped the creative process, with the producer and actor pointing out that having nobody push back is never a good thing.
The report points out that while McElhenney was initially reluctant to get involved with the project in the first place, that soon changed after Ubisoft invited him to take a look around their Montreal headquarters.
In the end, we got "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet." The show follows the team behind "the biggest multiplayer video game of all time" and reminds us that "the most hard-fought battles don't occur in the game—they happen in the office." Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to enjoy the show come February 7 as part of their $4.99 per month subscription.
