Veteran actor Steve Buscemi’s next role is that of the Christian God in the TBS show Miracle Workers, and we’re now getting a first look the actor in the role.
The network posted a trailer for Miracle Workers today, showing Buscemi playing a version of God who doesn’t really care about people anymore. Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe plays Craig, an angel. And, well … better to let the official show description (via Collider) explain for itself:
“A comedy set in the offices of Heaven Inc. When God plans to destroy the Earth, two low-level angels must convince their boss to save humanity. They bet him they can pull off their most impossible miracle yet: help two humans fall in love.”
Miracle Workers was created by Simon Rich, who was a writer on Saturday Night Live before creating the FXX show Man Seeking Woman (which was based on his book The Last Girlfriend on Earth). The show also stars Karan Soni (Deadpool), Jon Bass (Baywatch), and Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers).
Miracles Workers is just the latest TBS original show. It joins others like Angie Tribeca, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, People of Earth, Wrecked, Search Party, American Dad, and Conan.
