RSVP and join us for a free sneak preview of the pilot of the new CBS series "God Friended Me." After the pilot, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A with some of the stars of the show. The show stars Brandon Michael Hall ("The Mayor," "Search Party"), Violett Beane ("The Flash"), Javicia Leslie ("MacGyver," "Chef Julian"), Suraj Sharma (The Life of Pi, "Homeland"), and Joe Morton ("Scandal," Justice League). "God Friended Me" is a humorous, uplifting drama about an outspoken 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. Miles Finer (Brandon Michael Hall) is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn't believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer (Joe Morton), a beloved preacher at Harlem's Trinity Church for 25 years who is stung by his son's strong rejection of his faith. 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. After repeated pokes by God, Miles' curiosity takes over, and he accepts the request and follows the signs to Cara Bloom (Violett Beane), an online journalist suffering from writer's block. 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 (Javicia Leslie), a doctoral psych student by day and bartender by night, and his best friend, Rakesh (Suraj 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.
