CBS Announces New Faith Based TV Series

If GOD asks you to be his Facebook friend, would you…
A. Confirm or B. Ignore His Friend Request?

This September, a new and uplifting television series premieres on CBSGOD FRIENDED ME is about an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God, and, unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.

GOD FRIENDED ME is created by Bryant Wynbrandt and Steven Lilien, the producing team behind some of TV’s biggest hits including, Gotham, Hawaii Five-O, and Alcatraz.  It stars Joe Morton (Scandal, Justice League, The Good Wife), Violet Beane (The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow), Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi, Homeland) and newcomer Brandon Micheal Hall.  The series premieres on Sunday, September 30 on CBS Television.

Miles Finer (Brandon Micheal Hall) is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn’t believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer (Joe Morton), a beloved preacher at Harlem’s Trinity Church for 25 years who is stung by his son’s strong rejection of his faith. Miles feels he’s found his purpose in life hosting a podcast where he’s free to speak his mind, but that changes when he receives the ultimate friend request. After repeated pokes by God, Miles’ curiosity takes over, and he accepts the request and follows the signs to Cara Bloom (Violett Beane), an online journalist suffering from writer’s block.

Brought together by the “God Account,” the two find themselves investigating God’s friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Joining them on their journey are Miles’ supportive sister, Ali (Javicia Leslie), a doctoral psych student by day and bartender
by night, and his best friend, Rakesh (Suraj Sharma), a sometime hacker who helps Miles and Cara research the enigmatic account. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he’ll play along and, in the process, change his life forever.

This is an inspirational show about hope, faith, and questions we’ve all asked such as: What’s my purpose in this world?  How can I be of service to others and be an agent of good?

Look for God Friended Me to premiere on CBS on Sunday, September 30 at 8p ET/PT. Get your first look at the new series below.
