Quinta B is set to recur in the third season of TBS’s anthology series Miracle Workers opposite Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni.
The anthology series is a Heaven-set workplace comedy based on Simon Rich’s book What in God’s Name. In the first season Radcliffe plays Craig, a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity’s prayers, and Buscemi plays Craig’s boss God, who has pretty much checked out and is ready to move on to his next project. To prevent Earth’s destruction, Craig and fellow angel Eliza (Viswanathan) must answer a seemingly impossible prayer: help two humans fall in love. Soni plays Sanjay, God’s right-hand man.
The new season is set in the year 1844 and follows an idealistic small-town preacher (Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and a liberated prairie wife (Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape which, much like today, is fraught with both promise and peril.
Brunson will play Trig, who’s tough as nails and completely ruthless. She was found by Benny (Buscemi) when she was a child and eventually taken in as his unofficial adopted daughter who he trained to be an outlaw from a young age. Though he is a father figure to her, she begins to resent him because she thinks he’s a deadbeat dad. Trig has a cool toughness and can hold her own, without Benny.
Miracle Workers is executive produced by Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Katy Jenson of Michaels’ Broadway Video, along with Radcliffe, Buscemi, Dan Mirk and Robert Padnick.
Up next, Brunson will star in the series she created for ABC, Abbott Elementary. It is premiering later this year.
