My favorite Sunday night faith based show, God Friended Me has been picked up for a full season by CBS.
GOD FRIENDED ME is Sunday’s #1 scripted series, averaging over 10 million viewers and improving its time period +8% in viewers over last season. The series stars Brandon Micheal Hall, Violett Beane, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie and Joe Morton.
In the series Hall plays an Atheist who hosts a podcast about not believing in God, who is then friended by God on Facebook.
Each week, Miles is presented with a new problem suggested by this new “friend,” and each week he’s given an opportunity to help somebody who is dealing with a hardship.
Because Hall was brought up i the church, he was excited to get involved with this new project.
“I had such a deep connection to what I thought Church and God were to me. The script did exactly what Steven and Bryan set out to do, which was to raise a conversation about what is religion and spirituality, and what that means to an individual, and having an individual find their own path to God. For me, it has been enlightening and it’s a continuing process. It’s made me continue to question my relationship and to gain a closer relationship with my spiritual groundedness.”
