God Friended Me – Coming to CBS

There’s a new CBS television series on the horizon called “God Friended Me.” According to CBS, the show is an inspirational drama about an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. Miles Finer is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn’t believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer, a beloved preacher at Harlem’s Trinity Church for 25 years who is stung by his son’s strong rejection of his faith. Miles feels he’s found his purpose in life hosting a podcast where he’s free to speak his mind, but that changes when he receives the ultimate friend request. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he’ll play along and, in the process, change his life forever. Thanks to our friends at Grace Hill Media, screenings are taking place around the country, so people interested in this new show about faith can get a preview. Here’s the list of screenings that are open to anyone. Let’s take a look at the show, and I’d love to have you come back after you’ve seen it and give us your comments!

  1. I imagine you might know the first episode hit the internet a couple weeks ago. Grabbed it and watched it.
    Liked it but found it predictable (not necessarily a horrible thing)…missed only one twist in the story, but that is unlikely to happen again….”one of each” casting predictable in this age…..glad that “realness” wasn’t washed out…..undecided as to whether I’ll add it.

  2. Attended the screening in Burbank last night. Wife and I both loved the show. It felt a little like a contemporary “Touched by an Angel.” The main characters were charming, and the show was well-written. It’s certainly not a bastion of Christian theology, but it may be a good vehicle to start a conversation about God’s love and His presence in this broken world.

    1. You nailed it Edgar. If it was a good vehicle to start a conversation about God, I would be very happy with that on Prime Time. We could use more of those! Thanks for the comment!

  3. Looks like I’m late to the party, but after a month of cleaning up from Hurricane Michael, I’m ready for some binge watching. Because of this show I finally became a CBS All Access subscriber today. Of course this subscription will also make it easier for me to watch the Alabama football game, but that’s beside the point.
