Daniel Radcliffe to star in TBS anthology comedy Miracle Workers

Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson will star in a seven-episode anthology comedy series called Miracle Workers. It is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and created by Simon Rich. Joining Michaels as executive producers are Simon Rich, Owen Wilson, Daniel Radcliffe and Andrew Singer which will produce the series in association with Turner's Studio T.

Scheduled to launch on American television channel TBS in 2018, the first season of Miracle Workers will be a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Rich's book What in God's Name. Daniel 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.

Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS:

"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,"

"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."
