Executive Producer Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live) has a new workplace comedy and that workplace is heaven.
The first season of anthology series Miracle Workers will be a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich’s book What in God’s Name, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni.
Radcliffe will play Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers, and Steve Buscemi will play Craig’s boss God, who has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly unanswerable prayer: help two humans fall in love.
Miracle Workers is created by Man Seeking Woman creator Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michaels’ Broadway Video, Simon Rich, Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi.
Miracle Workers premieres February 12 at 10:30/9:30c on TBS.
