Lolly Adefope to star in US Comedy

Lolly Adefope has won a role in US comedy Miracle Workers alongside fellow Brit Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi, the sitcom is set in Heaven with Steve Buscemi playing God and Lolly his dissatisfied assistant, Rosie.

Lolly revealed the details of Miracle Workers to Adam Buxton on his podcast, explaining that her character is disenchanted to find out that our Lord is “a moron,” and Rosie “did all the training to get to this executive position and then has no use for any of her talents and skills.

“So she’s just really bored and hates her life, every day. But then things develop as the show goes on.”

According to Steve Buscemi his character is “a childlike God, who is incompetent in a dysfunctional Heaven”, Daniel Radcliffe plays Craig, an angel who deals with prayer and has to persuade God not to destroy the earth.

Miracle Workers is an adaptation by SNL writer Simon Rich of his 2012 novel What In God’s Name, it is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and set to air this summer in the US.
