ABOUT THE SHOW: 

Deep down in the Mississippi Delta lies an oasis of grit and glitter in a rough patch of human existence where beauty can be hard to find. This southern-fried, hour-long drama tells the kaleidoscopic story of a little-strip-club-that-could and the big characters who come through its doors—the hopeful, the lost, the broken, the ballers, the beautiful, and the damned. Trap music meets film noir in this lyrical and atmospheric series that dares to ask what happens when small-town folk dream beyond the boundaries of the Piggly Wiggly and the pawnshop.

ABOUT THE SHOW:

The episode, “Mythic Quest: Quarantine” was written, filmed, and edited in quarantine and shot entirely on iPhone, this 30-minute special episode of Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet - now streaming on Apple TV+ - captures the reality of human connection during the age of COVID and sets the tone for the future of creating television amid the global pandemic. In "Mythic Quest: Quarantine," we find the team behind the biggest multiplayer video game of all-time tasked with working from home -- Poppy (Charlotte Nicdao) struggles with solitude while Brad (Danny Pudi) and David (Hornsby) start a charitable competition. David attempts to corral them all during their time of quarantine with mixed but ultimately hilarious results. Forbes hailed the episode for its “masterful storytelling and the first piece of media to really find the pulse of our cultural mindset right now; ” and Fast Company says it’s “the first narrative show that truly has something to say about this era and manages to get it across in its own unique voice.”
