TBS Greenlights Anthology Comedy Miracle Workers, Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson

Lorne Michaels to Executive-Produce

Turner's TBS has greenlit Miracle Workers, an anthology comedy series starring Daniel Radcliffe (Swiss Army Man, Now You See Me 2, Harry Potter Films) and Owen Wilson (Midnight in Paris, Masterminds). The series is executive-produced by Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live) and created by Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman), who will also serve as showrunner on the series. Joining Michaels as executive producers are Rich, Wilson, Radcliffe and Andrew Singer of Broadway Video, which will produce the series in association with Turner's Studio T.

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

"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."

Miracle Workers is the latest series to join TBS's growing slate of premium comedy series. Last year, the network launched six consecutive hits, including five of cable's top 15 new comedies of 2016: Wrecked, The Detour, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, People of Earth and Angie Tribeca. TBS also claimed some of the most critically acclaimed comedies of the year, led by Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and Search Party, both of which earned 100% Fresh critical ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. All six of TBS's 2016 comedies were renewed for new seasons.

This summer, TBS is scheduled to launch The Guest Book, an anthology comedy from writer/executive producer Greg Garcia. In addition, the network will launch The Last O.G., a new scripted comedy starring Tracy Morgan and created by executive producers Jordan Peele and John Carcieri.
