It was really technically complicated, what they were asking him to do. Ganz also emphasized the urgency with which “Quarantine” was made, saying a special with this subject matter would only be appropriate and be able to resonate with audiences for a finite period of time. The following is a compliment: While watching the new “Mythic Quest” quarantine special, I forgot several times that it is, essentially, a very effective commercial for Apple products. But at that point we realized we didn’t have much to do. And I think that the call lasted like eight hours as we just troubleshooted how to make this thing. And our post department really exercised just a ton of patience, walking him through how to put all these apps on his phone and all the settings. “Rob gave me a call on a Saturday morning and was like, ‘Hey, we were thinking of making another episode, but from our homes and we want to shoot some test stuff today,’” Nicdao said.

And it did result in like him accidentally calling the emergency number twice while they were setting it up.”. “I imagine, potentially at the end of this, people won’t necessarily want to be thinking about it all the time or revisiting it. Ganz went on to discuss how the writers used their relationship with game developer Ubisoft to understand how employees in the video game industry were working under quarantine, drawing from their reality to write the special. “Now, there are people all over the world that are struggling a whole lot more than an actor sitting in a house sweating through their clothing, however it did present challenges insofar as they’re dripping sweat in some of those scenes and it was overheating the equipment.”.

While McElhenney’s Ian seems to be living his best life, alone in his compound, relaxing in his hot tub, working out in an at-home gym and preparing guided meditation in a lush garden, Poppy is throwing herself into her work to keep herself from spinning out into a depression spiral. “Ubisoft was telling us that all the video game studios were working remotely,” Ganz said.

“Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” is a live-action comedy series that follows a team of video game developers as they navigate the challenges of running a popular video game. Series star, co-creator and executive producer Rob McElhenney was joined by co-creator Megan Ganz and star Charlotte Nicdao (“Poppy”) to participate in a conversation in the Variety Streaming Room presented by Apple TV Plus.

Shot on Poppy’s computer camera, left on but in a room distant from her front door, the two figures are small in the frame, as well as shrouded in shadows, so it is not obvious that it is not McElhenney embracing her. The team behind Apple TV Plus’s original series “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet” has been working on the outline for the second season since the show premiered on the streamer back in February.

The latest comedy from Apple TV Plus comes from a group of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia alums.

“When he goes to Poppy, it’s as much for her as it is for him. “I don’t know that it would be socially responsible to make right now. Brad (Danny Pudi) doesn’t like to give things away without getting something in return, hence the wager for David’s mustache as they battle it out on a video game. He also heard about the “Parks and Recreation” special while working on this, so he called Mike Schur for advice and to make sure they weren’t doing anything too similar.
