Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone to Star in “God’s Favorite Idiot” – New Netflix Comedy Series

Netflix has announced that Melissa McCarthy (“Bridesmaids”, “The Heat”) and Ben Falcone (“Tammy”, “Enough Said”) will star in and executive produce “God’s Favorite Idiot” – a new workplace comedy series. Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Michael McDonald is also set to direct the series. Falcone created the show which follows Clark Thompson (Falcone), a midlevel tech-support employee who finds love with co-worker Amily Luck (McCarthy) at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God. Also, there’s rollerskating, a lake of fire and an impending apocalypse.

The married couple have previously worked together in both “Tammy” and “The Happytime Murders” as well as the comedy series “Nobodies”.
