Mike Myers will star in and executive produce a half-hour comedy series for Netflix.

The untitled series, which has received a six-episode order, will see Myers portraying multiple characters.

Myers, known for his days on “Saturday Night Live” and the “Austin Powers” and “Shrek” film franchises, most recently appeared in the Queen biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” He also executive produces and hosts ABC’s “The Gong Show” in character as Tommy Maitland.

“I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in,” Myers said in a statement.

Myers is no stranger to portraying multiple characters. In the “Austin Powers”  film series, he played the title character, his nemesis Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard and Goldmember. On “SNL,” he played Wayne Campbell (which led to two “Wayne’s World” feature films), “Sprockets” host Dieter, and Linda Richman from “Coffee Talk.”

Along with Myers, John Lyons and Jason Weinberg will serve as executive producers, with Mackenzie Cyr and Justin Capraro-Gentuso on board as associate producers. Lyons previously executive produced “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “Austin Powers in Goldmember,” while Weinberg is an executive producer on “The Gong Show.”
