Owen Wilson and Daniel Radcliffe to Play God and an Angel on New Series

Actors Daniel Radcliffe and Owen Wilson will be starring in a new series called Miracle Workers which will air on TBS in 2018.

Wilson, known for his roles in director Wes Anderson’s films, his voicing of Lightning McQueen in Disney-Pixar’s Cars franchise, as well as many other acting and producing roles, is to play God in the new series.

Radcliffe, who is most famous for his role as Harry Potter in the Harry Potter films, will play a low-level angel named Craig.

Miracle Workers takes place in a typical workplace environment. Wilson’s character of God is portrayed as more focused on his own “hobbies,” according to a report from the A.V. Club, which leaves Radcliffe’s character Craig to handle important tasks, some of which seem too big for him, which calls to mind a dynamic that has been portrayed on television before, such as in the classic film It’s a Wonderful Life.

According to Relevant, the show will be an anthology series, meaning each episode will be a self-contained story. Episodes will feature different characters. Wilson and Radcliffe will star in the first seven episodes.

Do you think the new series will be good? Will you watch it?
