Stan has unveiled the official trailer for the new heaven-set workplace comedy, MIRACLE WORKERS, premiering Wednesday, February 13 and starring Steve Buscemi, Daniel Radcliffe, Australia’s Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni.
The official trailer, released today, shows God (Steve Buscemi) as you’ve never seen him before. Based on Simon Rich’s book, What In God’s Name, this seven-episode limited series turns the perception of heaven on its head while also mocking the case that humans are worth saving.
Daniel Radcliffe and Buscemi executive produce and star alongside Karan Soni (Deadpool) and Australia’s Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers). Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers. Buscemi plays Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on petty hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans, Laura and Sam (played by Sasha Compere and Jon Bass), fall in love. Karan Soni plays Sanjay, God’s right-hand man.
Guest stars Tituss Burgess, Margaret Cho, Angela Kinsey, Tim Meadows, John Reynolds, Lolly Adefope and Chris Parnell will also appear throughout the season.
MIRACLE WORKERS comes exclusively to Stan as part of its long-term partnership with Turner. The series is created by Man Seeking Woman creator Simon Rich. It is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Andrew Singer of Michaels’ Broadway Video, along with Rich, Radcliffe and Buscemi. Broadway Video produces the series in association with Turner’s Studio T.
MIRACLE WORKERS will premiere February 13 on Stan, with new episodes weekly, same day as the U.S.
