Harry Potter is entering the #PeakTV realm.
TBS has handed a seven-episode series order to Miracle Workers, an anthology comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson and exec-produced by Saturday Night Live boss Lorne Michaels.
Scheduled to launch on TBS in 2018, the first season of Miracle Workers is being billed as a “Heaven-set workplace comedy” in which Radcliffe will play Craig, a low level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. Wilson will portray 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 asthe home of the most creative minds in the business,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS in a statement.
Radcliffe’s previous TV work is pretty much limited to the UK comedy A Young Doctor’s Notebook, in which he starred alongside Jon Hamm for two seasons.
