Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson will be starring in TBS’ Miracle Workers, an upcoming anthology comedy series created by Man Seeking Woman‘s Simon Rich. Rich is the showrunner and an executive producer along with Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live), Owen Wilson, Daniel Radcliffe, and Andrew Singer. According to TBS, season one will consist of seven episodes set to air in 2018.
“Having Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson join the TBS family is proof of the continued evolution of this comedy brand as the home of the most creative minds in the business,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Owen Wilson has long been a comic genius, and Daniel’s performance in last year’s Swiss Army Man really proved that there’s a sophisticated comedian under the surface of those brilliant dramatic chops. Simon and Lorne are total pros in walking the tightrope between reality and ridiculousness, and they do it with a lot of heart and wit.”
The Plot: The first season of Miracle Workers will be a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Rich’s book What in God’s Name. Daniel Radcliffe will play Craig, a low level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers and Owen Wilson will play Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on his favorite hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig must achieve his most impossible miracle to date.
