The first trailer for new limited series Miracle Workers, starring Steve Buscemi and Daniel Radcliffe, has been released.
Buscemi plays a disgruntled God who “has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project,” according to an official plot synopsis.
Daniel Radcliffe plays Craig, a frantic, overworked angel who’s job is to answer all of Earth’s unanswered prayers. “To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly unanswerable prayer: help two humans fall in love,” the synopsis continues.
Watch the first trailer below.
The TBS series is based on Simon Rich’s book titled ‘What in God’s name’ and is set for release on February 12, 2019.
The acclaimed play opened in London in 2016 and catches up with the titular wizard as he faces an increasingly strained relationship with son Albus Severus, who is preparing to head to Hogwarts for the first time.
“I’m probably not going to see it, I don’t have plans to,” he told US talk show host Seth Meyers. “Not because I think it would throw me into some sort of existential crisis of like, ‘Oh, is that what happened?’”
Radcliffe also claimed that a trip to see the show would “not be a relaxing evening,”.
“I feel like I would be being watched for my reaction”, he explained.
“And maybe that is completely conceited and egotistical and people wouldn’t care, but I do feel if I was just surrounded by ‘Harry Potter’ fans, it would be a little odd.”
