Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, who must get along pretty well for how often they work together, have found yet another project: According to Deadline, they’ll be starring in God’s Favorite Idiot, a new Netflix comedy series created by Falcone and directed by Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Michael McDonald that already has a 16-episode series order from the streaming service. In the vein of The Good Place or Miracle Workers or God Friended Me, God’s Favorite Idiot is a high-concept workplace comedy about “a midlevel tech-support employee” (Falcone) who falls in love with a coworker (McCarthy) “at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God.” Deadline says there’s also “rollerskating, a lack of fire, and an impending apocalypse”—a.k.a. some kind of season-long arc that will explain why Falcone’s character can talk to God. Or maybe it’s not really God? That would be a fun twist.
