I’m so disenchanted with television lately, especially with so much ongoing vitriol, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that CBS has a new uplifting drama premiering, Sunday, September 30th, 8PM-9PM. This is a clever drama using the social media platform in a way that is humorous, encouraging and appears to be worth watching!
“God Friended Me,” is about Miles Finer (Brandon Micheal Hall) an intelligent, optimistic, atheist. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer (Joe Morton), who is stung by his son’s strong rejection of his faith. Miles hosts 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 (Violet Beane), an online journalist. 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’s sister, Ali (Javica Leslie) and his best friend, Rakesh (Suraj Sharma). Miles is determined to get to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the process, this friend request may change his life forever!
Take a peek I think you’ll be looking forward to September on CBS!
