Close To Heaven - Church Comedy Receives Put Pilot at NBC

NBC has given a put pilot commitment to Close To Heaven, a single-camera comedy from frequent collaborators, writer Brad Copeland and producer Aaron Kaplan.

Written by Copleland, the project, based on the Swedish television series Halvvägs till himlen, hails from Universal TV and Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment.

In Close To Home, an eager young minister arrives to be the head pastor of a small town church after years of missionary work in Africa. He dreams of enlightening the community with his bold new ideas and well-intentioned enthusiasm, but discovers the church isn’t quite ready for it. Or him.
