Watch Lin-Manuel Miranda show off his zanier side in the clip from Vimeo’s new series Bartlett. Dressed as Jesus in the glimpse above, Miranda’s character is part of an advertising scheme with lead character Roger.

The six-episode original comedy Bartlett premieres January 30. Created by Chrissy Mazzeo and Martin Edwards, the musically-inspired series “chronicles a group of incredibly talented advertising execs in Silicon Valley who fight their character flaws and fondness for dysfunction to perfect the art of the pitch, in life and in work.”

The show features a cast that also includes Veneziale, Mazzeo, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Don Reed, and newcomer Eirinie Carson.

Veneziale, Ambudkar, and Miranda are all part of Freestyle Love Supreme, the improv hip hop group that also includes Hamilton’s Christopher Jackson and Tony winner James Monroe Iglehart.

The show follows advertising agency bad boy Roger (Veneziale) after Maggie (Mazzeo)—the true brains behind the business success of the newly formed agency—leaves him and their agency for Roger's nemesis Sanjay (Ambudkar).
