Lisa Kudrow heads a stellar cast in the all-new comedic adventure, Time Bandits, the first-ever television adaptation of the beloved cult classic movie. Originally directed by Terry Gilliam and released in 1981, the film follows a young boy who joins a group of time-traveling dwarfs on a journey through various historical periods. The series, created by Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords), Iain Morris (The Inbetweeners), and Taika Waititi (Our Flag Means Death), will debut on Wednesday, July 24.


Penelope (Kudrow) and her eccentric crew of bandits embark on epic adventures while evil forces threaten their conquests and life as they know it. With their newest recruit, Kevin, an 11-year-old history enthusiast, the group transports through time and space, stumbling upon fascinating worlds of the distant past while seeking out treasure and relying 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.



The 10-episode series stars Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback), Kal-El Tuck (Unseeing Evil), Tadhg Murphy (Conversations with Friends), Roger Jean Nsengiyumva (You Don’t Know Me), Rune Temte (Eddie the Eagle), Charlyne Yi (Knocked Up), Rachel House (Heartbreak High), Kiera Thompson (Martyrs Lane), James Dryden (Ready Player One), Felicity Ward (The Office Australia), Francesca Mills (Harlots), and Imaan Hadchiti (Thor: Love and Thunder). 'Time Bandits' also includes special guest appearances by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement.


'Time Bandits' is produced for Apple TV+ by Paramount Television Studios, Anonymous Content’s AC Studios, and MRC. Jemaine Clement, Iain Morris, and Taika Waititi serve as executive producers, writers, and directors for select episodes, with Clement and Morris acting as co-showrunners. Additionally, Garrett Basch and Tim Coddington are executive producers, and Jane Stanton executive produces for Handmade Films.
