God Friended Me is an uplifting drama about an unspoken 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.
Starring Brandon Micheal Hall, Violett Beane , Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie, Erica Gimpel and Joe Morton, the show’s second season premieres new episodes every Tuesday at 20:30, exclusive to 1Magic!
WHAT THE SHOW IS ABOUT
Miles Finer (Hall) is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn’t believe in God.
This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer (Morton), who recently decided to leave his longtime position as a preacher at Harlem’s Trinity Church and propose to his girlfriend, Trish (Gimpel), a music store owner who helped Arthur rekindle his love of jazz. 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.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON SEASON 2!
After repeated pokes by “God,” Miles’ curiosity takes over, and he accepts the request and follows the signs to journalist Cara Bloom (Beane).
Brought together by the God Account, the two find themselves investigating “God’s” friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Joining them on their journey are Miles’s supportive sister, Ali (Leslie), a doctoral psych student by day and bartender by night, and his best friend, Rakesh (Sharma), a sometime hacker who helps Miles and Cara research the enigmatic account. 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.
Tune in on Tuesdays at 20:30 on 1Magic, DStv channel 103, to see how it all pans for Miles and crew on their pursuit of God!
