Miracle Workers is arriving on UK TV this January thanks to Sky Comedy.
Sky’s new channel, which launched today, is the home of premium scripted US comedy from HBO, NBC and Showtime, including brand new comedies such as Mrs Fletcher, starring Kathryn Hahn, The Righteous Gemstones, starring John Goodman, Adam DeVine and Danny McBride, A.P. Bio and Sunnyside. Also included in that bumper line-up is the belated debut of Miracle Workers on British screens.
Based on Simon Rich’s novel What in God’s Name, the seven-part first season of the anthology series is a workplace comedy set in Heaven, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni. Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers, and Steve Buscemi plays 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. Broadway Video produces the series in association with Turner’s Studio T.
The series premieres at 9pm on Sky Comedy on Monday 27th January, with the whole box set also available on-demand.
