AppleTV+ has today given a series order to an adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 1981 feature film Time Bandits. The streamer has ordered 10 episodes for the drama, which is created by Taika Waititi (What We Do In the Shadows, Our Flag Means Death).

The series is a comedic journey through time and space with a ragtag group of thieves and their newest recruit: an 11-year-old history nerd.
