Summary of God’s Favorite Idiots

As the show’s title and some of the character names suggest, God’s favorite idiot has a biblical twist. Clark Thompson is a mid-level technical support engineer who finds himself involved in God’s great plan. He must work with his associates and angelic allies to outwit Satan (played by Leslie Bibb). It sounds a bit like The good place in some ways.

Read the official synopsis:

Clark Thompson (Ben Falcone) is a tech support guy who goes to the sauna with his father Gene (Kevin Dunn), mourns the loss of his colleague Amily (Melissa McCarthy), and loves his cats. As he begins to glow, he realizes that this is no ordinary day at the office and that God has bigger plans for him.

Clark can’t save humanity alone; he must gather his unlikely colleagues, his longtime crush Amily, and angelic allies to outwit Satan himself (Leslie Bibb). Together, they’re just a bunch of average people coming together for the common good, because after all, you can’t save the world alone.
