The Flash‘s Violett Beane is set as the female lead opposite Brandon Micheal Hall in the CBS pilot God Friended Me, a light hourlong procedural from Alcatraz co-creators Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, director Marcos Siega, Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV.
Written by Lilien and Wynbrandt and to be directed by Siega, God Friended Me is described as a humorous, uplifting series that explores questions of faith, existence and science.

Unwittingly, he becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him.

Under pressure for her next big story, her life takes an interesting turn when she meets Miles — thanks to God’s friend suggestion. The cast also includes Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie and Joe Morton.
Lilien and Wynbrandt executive produce God Friended Me alongside Siega and Berlanti Prods.’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
