After an aggressive start to its transformation more than three years ago, TBS has established itself as television’s #1 comedy network with 6 of the top 20 cable comedies in 2018 — more than any other network. TBS ranks as one of cable's top 3 networks in primetime with adults 18-34 and 18-49 and is already well positioned to repeat its chart-topping victory from previous years.

TBS's Miracle Workers

Series Premiere: February 12th @ 10:30 p.m. ET/PT

Miracle Workers is a heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich’s book What in God's Name. The seven-episode anthology series stars Daniel Radcliffe (Swiss Army Man, Now You See Me 2, Harry Potter films) as ‘Craig,’ a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) will play Craig’s boss, God, who has pretty much checked out to focus on his favorite hobbies. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig must achieve his most impossible miracle to date.

The series is executive-produced by Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live), Simon Rich, Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi and Andrew Singer of Broadway Video, which will produce the series in association with Turner’s Studio T.
