Time Bandits, a new series starring Lisa Kudrow, is coming to Apple TV+ in July. The comedy adventure series is based on the 1981 film of the same name, with Kudrow starring alongside Kal-El Tuck, Tadhg Murphy, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rune Temte, Charlyne Yi, Rachel House, Kiera Thompson, James Dryden, Felicity Ward, Francesca Mills and Imaan Hadchiti.

Time Bandits takes viewers on “an unpredictable journey through time and space with a ragtag group of thieves and their newest recruit: an 11-year-old history buff named Kevin. Together, they set out on a thrilling quest to save the boy’s parents — and the world.”  An official synopsis reads: “The Time Bandits witness the creation of Stonehenge, see the Trojan Horse in action, escape dinosaurs in the prehistoric ages, wreak havoc during medieval times, experience the ice age, ancient civilizations, the Harlem Renaissance, and much more along the way.”

The TV adaptation is created by Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), Iain Morris (The Inbetweeners) and Taika Waititi (Our Flag Means Death), and produced for Apple TV+ by Paramount Television Studios, Anonymous Content’s AC Studios and MRC.

Time Bandits is set to premiere July 24 on Apple TV+.
