Is God On Facebook? CBS Hopes So, In Possible New Show

An atheist sends a friend request to ‘God’ on Facebook and God accepts. This is the basis for, God Friended Me, a potential new hour-long television drama-comedy from CBS.

CBS ordered a pilot episode of the proposed show for the fall, and if it gains traction with audiences it could become a weekly television series. God Friended Me is a product of Berlanti Productions, the Hollywood company behind the popular television shows Dawson’s Creek, Supergirl and Riverdale, among others.

The theme of God talking to a skeptic is not new for CBS. Joan of Arcadia, a drama about a teen who becomes an instrument of the Divine, aired on the network from 2003 to 2005, and Touched by an Angel was a huge hit with audiences and critics for the network for nine years. Support faith-based television when the show airs this fall.
