God Friended Me - Light Procedural from Alcatraz Co-Creators & Greg Berlanti Receives Put Pilot at CBS



In a competitive situation, CBS has nabbed God Friended Me, a light hourlong procedural from Alcatraz co-creators Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, director Marcos Siega and Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions. Warner Bros. TV, where Berlanti Prods. is based, is the studio.

Written by Lilien and Wynbrandt and to be directed by Siega, God Friended Me is described as a humorous, uplifting series, which explores questions of faith, existence, and science. It centers on an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he is “friended” by God on Facebook. Unwittingly, he becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.

This is the second sale and second put pilot commitment for Berlanti Prods.

Additionally, CBS has bought multi-camera comedy My Other Life In Brooklyn. Both projects are produced by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, which was also behind Nash’s single-camera comedy Losing It that went to pilot at ABC last season with Jon Cryer starring.

My Other Life In Brooklyn, a co-production between Kapital and CBS TV Studios, is about a guy who marries the woman of his dreams, only to get the job of a lifetime 200 miles away. As he moves back in with his single friends, flying home to his wife on the weekends, he discovers that relationship issues are ever-present in his life, regardless of what zip code he happens to be living in.

The project is based on Nash’s experience as a newlywed. At the time, he was a standup comedian living in New York with his new wife who had just taken the New York bar exam. For Nash to pursue a career in comedy writing, they moved to Los Angeles where his wife passed the California bar and found a job at a prestigious law firm. The two settled in, and Nash landed his first staff writing job but it was on a show, Whoopi, which was based in New York. Because they didn’t know how long the series would last, for the next nine months Nash commuted, working in New York and flying back to Los Angeles every weekend.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
