Lisa Kudrow to Lead Taika Waititi’s Upcoming ‘Time Bandit’ Series

It looks like Taika Waititi has found his time bandit in Lisa Kudrow, as the Friends star is set to lead his upcoming adaptation of the 1981 Terry Gilliam film. The series is currently in production for Apple TV+ and has also cast seven actors that include Charlyne Yi, Tadhg Murphy, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rune Temte, Rachel House, Kiera Thompson, and Kal-El Tuck.

The series has been in development since 2019 and was given the description of “a comedic journey through time and space with a ragtag group of thieves and their newest recruit: an 11-year-old history nerd.” Tuck will take on the role of the young nerd by the name of Kevin.

Waititi is a co-writer and signed on to direct the first two episodes of the Apple TV+ series. He’s been quite busy with his TV ventures, as he’s seen quite the success with the FX series What We Do in the Shadows as well as Reservation Dogs. There’s also his HBO Max series Our Flag Means Death where he also plays the character of Blackbeard.

Kudrow has been quite busy, as she appeared in Disney+’s Better Nate Than Ever, Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, and more. While she’s still famously remembered for her role on Friends, she’s gone to have quite the extensive TV and film career. So, it’ll be interesting to see what she brings to this new series.
