“I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in.”
Executive producing alongside Myers will be John Lyons and Jason Weinberg, while Mackenzie Cyr and Justin Capraro-Gentuso will be associate producers on the untitled series.
In addition to starring in the Austin Powers series and Wayne’s World and its sequel, Myers is also known for his time on Saturday Night Live and voicing the title character in the Shrek franchise.
