AppleTV+ Sets Premiere Date for Drama 'Time Bandits' Starring Lisa Kudrow

AppleTV+ has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original drama series Time Bandits starring Lisa Kudrow.

The 10-episode first season will launch on Wednesday, July 24.

The unpredictable journey through time and space follows 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. Guided by Kudrow, the eccentric crew of bandits embark on epic adventures while evil forces threaten their conquests and life as they know it. As the group transports through time and space, the gang stumbles upon fascinating worlds of the distant past while seeking out treasure, depending on Kevin to shed light on each situation. 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.

In addition to Kudrow, the drama stars 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.

Jemaine Clement, Iain Morris and Taika Waititi developed the series based on the cult classic movie. They executive produce with Garrett Basch, Tim Coddington and Jane Stanton. Apple Studios, Paramount Television Studios, Anonymous Content, MRC and Handmade Films produce.
