MANILA, PHILIPPINES (January 20, 2020) – They called that period in history the “Dark Ages” for a reason. Now, from the creator of the long-running comedy Saturday Night Live, Lorne Michaels, comes a black comedy set in medieval times starring Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi.
Radcliffe plays a prince with an existential crisis. While Buscemi is a peasant with the worst name and the worst job in the village—but he still manages to keep his head up!
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages Anthology, created by Simon Rich, is an irreverent look at a point in time about which we know very little and one that is vastly different from everything we know in our contemporary world today.
If you guffawed at the TBS Original series’ season 1 of Miracle Workers, then get ready for more laugh-out-loud moments whether you’re watching, alone or with your friends, the same cast. In season 1, they had the enormous task of saving the world. What will this rowdy bunch of talents tackle next? Find out when the series premieres on January 29 at 10:40 pm on Warner TV. We dare you to keep a straight face through each of the 10 episodes!
Created by Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Miracle Workers: Dark Ages is a medieval story about friendship, family and trying not to be murdered. The second season of the anthology series centers upon a group of medieval villagers trying to stay positive in an age of extreme income inequality, poor healthcare, and widespread ignorance. This 10-episode installment will feature Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, Jon Bass, and Lolly Adefope returning in new roles and facing new challenges. Miracle Workers: Dark Ages is executive produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video with Andrew Singer and Katy Jenson executive producing alongside Rich, Radcliffe, & Buscemi.
Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate – the daughter he still has – at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes – a dark knight vigilante.
With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a saviour, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
