ATLANTA — What if we lived in a world where God was Frustrated with the current state of Earth? So, his solution is to blow it up, but two angels are trying to change his mind? Well this concept is a real show and it’s filmed here in Georgia.
The A-Scene’s Francesca Amiker caught up with the cast members Karan Soni, Jon Bass, Sasha Compère and director Jorma Taccone of “Miracle Workers”. Check it out in the video player.
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 making the case that humans are worth saving.
Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi executive produce and star alongside Karan Soni (Deadpool) and 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.
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” was created by “Man Seeking Woman” creator Simon Rich.
The show 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.
The cast revealed that the warehouse where they filmed this show is the same warehouse where “Godzilla” and “First Man” was shot.
They also spent their off camera time indulging in food and people watching at Ponce City Market.
